Andrew Wade Keating

AIA – Partner
As an architect and principal at Stack + Co., Andrew operates at the intersection of design, technology, and the humanities – pushing beyond the core considerations of function and utility to evoke context, narrative, and to extract or emphasize the unique identities of organizations and clients.

Andrew studied art history and architecture at Williams College and RISD, and holds a Master in Architecture from the Harvard Graduate School of Design. At Williams, he was a founding member of the Architecture VR project, using immersive, spherical panoramic photography in combination with technical drawing to replace the slide-based presentations in the school’s popular survey architectural history courses. At the GSD, where he was awarded a Walker-Beale scholarship, his academic work was featured in the publication “Architecture and Waste”. Actar, 2017 and his competition entry for a re-design of the Loeb Design Library was a jury selection. His master’s thesis “Guggenheim Zeppelin, in defense of architecture in the age of digital curation” explored the future of the museum and art space in the era of digital art making and was one of the first GSD thesis projects to use software coding and applied Virtual Reality to present work to observers and design critics immersively in VR.

He has been an invited panelist/presenter at the AIA Emerging Architect’s forum, AIA BIM Forum, A Better World by Design Conference, a visiting critic at MassArt Architecture, Roger Williams University, Brown University, and for several years organized the Associated Schools of Construction Design Build competition.

His professional experience includes William Rawn Associates Architects, where he worked on academic projects for Northeastern University, and Shawmut Design and Construction, where as a Project Manager he ran lab and science, historic preservation, and academic projects as large as $20 million.

Andrew’s unique hybrid skill-set is at the core of the architect-led integrated projects undertaken by Stack + Co.
