Repurposing Shopping Malls Into Thriving, Inclusive, "Character-ful" Communities

Alan Pullman, AIA, Founding Partner of Studio One Eleven, believes in the resiliency of cities, taking an optimistic approach to making them more just, inclusive, and sustainable for all. Since founding the Studio in 2000, Pullman has led the design and integration of their architecture and urban design work, including community-driven neighborhood improvements and innovative urban interventions focusing on sustainable mobility and quality of life. In collaboration with a collective of talented and spirited designers, Pullman's projects range from bringing shade and much-needed housing to L.A.'s most vulnerable residents to providing productive public realm spaces and community amenities to sidewalks and streets.

Pullman is a registered architect in California with over 30 years of experience. He is a member of the American Institute of Architects and the Urban Land Institute, where he serves on the Urban Revitalization Council. In addition, he was a director for the Downtown Long Beach Alliance, where he chaired the Board, the Economic Development Committee, and the committee in charge of creating the Long Beach Economic Partnership. A native of New York, Pullman was awarded his Bachelor of Architecture degree from Syracuse University and Master of Science in Cities from the London School of Economics and Political Science.
