Michael McCall

Adjunct Professor

Michael McCall is currently an Adjunct Professor at the University of Texas at Austin where he teaches architectural design. Previously, he practiced architecture in San Francisco where he founded McCall Design Group in 1989. McCall collaborated with clients and communities to create everyday architecture. An architecture that informs its context with the issues of fashion, seriality, and temporality, while addressing the broader issues of preservation, urbanism, sustainability, and globalization.

Mike also founded and directed the McCall Design Group Summer Studio, which was awarded an AIASF Merit Award for Unbuilt Design. Work from the studio has been exhibited nationally and internationally.

Additionally, McCall Design Group has a long and robust tradition of community involvement and pro bono work, including assisting in master plans for Glide Memorial Foundation and Tech Soup, as well as design and construction services for The Museum of Craft and Design, Sunset Cooperative Preschool, the Bowls Project, and numerous projects with Goodwill Industries. Mike has also taught at the College of Environmental Design at the University of California, Berkeley, and the California College of the Arts in San Francisco.
