James Hill

James Hill is the managing principal of Civic Design Associates, an urban planning and architecture firm in Houston. His firm engages in a wide range of community master plans, traditional neighborhood design plans and pattern books, urban codes, and mixed-use infill architecture, although he considers the firm’s specialty to be the complex, multivalent problems of large scale urban redevelopment and its regulation. Jim is a graduate engineer, architect, and planner, which together with growing up in Europe and living in unzoned Houston, lends a broad and multi-disciplinary perspective to his work. He holds Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering and Master of Architecture degrees, both from Rice University.
