Stephen Ziegler, RA

An architect with nearly five decades of experience, Stephen Ziegler has the thoughtfulness inherent to creative problem-solving. He spent his early career in smaller design practices, followed by 25 years in the institutional and museum studio of a large corporate firm. Over his tenure, Stephen contributed to designs for Citizens Bank Park, MetLife Stadium, the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of American History, and other notable buildings.

Years ago, a friend remarked to Stephen that he’s a good architect because he plays the guitar and goes fly fishing. Both are all-encompassing pursuits that require discipline, patience, and precision. Stephen brings all three qualities to the teams and projects on which he participates. His attention to detail stems from a life rich in creativity; he builds his own fishing rods, ties his own flies, paints in oils, and can quickly sketch and illustrate concepts for clients. He enjoys the puzzle of architecture, building things and putting complex pieces together. As a teen, Stephen built and raced a 16-foot sailboat. He’s also a Bruce Springsteen fan with a personal connection to the band.

Stephen holds a Master of Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania and a Bachelor of Architecture from the Pennsylvania State University. He is a registered architect in Pennsylvania and a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Accredited Professional. A longtime volunteer in his Whitemarsh Township community, Stephen has served on the Environmental Advisory Board and as chair of the Shade Tree Commission. He is a current member and former board member of the Anglers Club of Philadelphia.
