Bill Lanning, AIA


I have dedicated much of my experience in architecture to providing dignified and humane affordable housing. As Principal, I lead the majority of MWA Portland’s multifamily housing projects, ranging from market-rate to special needs. It helps that I am supported by an excellent team who are equally passionate about designing housing for all, whatever their particular life situation may be.

We have developed an approach that helps us to design high quality projects that are dynamic, become catalysts for the community, and provide the best degree of livability, functionality and maintainability.

Living in Portland for over 25 years I have been able to see it grow and continue to explore and appreciate the city with my family when we get the chance between soccer, softball, and dance classes.
