The Page & Beard Team

Galen Page | Principal

Galen is a co-founder and principal architect at Page & Beard Architects, PS. Before attending the architecture program at Washington State University Galen took one year of study at Arizona Institute of Drafting, Design, & Engineering. This experience provided him with a comprehensive understanding of the field of architecture and engineering. While attending the Bachelor of Architecture program at WSU, Galen worked summers as an architectural intern for three design firms in Bellingham, Washington. His second semester of the fourth year in the architecture program was spent at the University of Copenhagen studying architectural design with students from around the world under the direction of the world renowned city planner and Danish architect Jahn Gehl and international architect and artist Ole Kortsu.

After graduating with honors from the architecture program he worked for five years drafting and designing both public and private projects before joining forces with Lee Beard to start Page & Beard Architects in 1990. He has carved out a niche in the public works sector designing over a dozen Utility Districts. Galen’s specialty is listening to the client and designing a building, whether it is a small remodel or a large Utility district, that fits the specific needs of the owner-occupier.
