A Tribute in Remembrance of Kevin Sloan
We are saddened to share that Kevin Sloan, landscape architect, urban planner, author, and dedicated professor, passed away at the end of October.
Kevin Sloan displayed an endless intellectual curiosity and a zest for life, which is demonstrated through his numerous contributions to the City of Dallas, North Texas, and the CAPPA community. Sloan achieved a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture from Kansas State University and a Master of Architecture from Syracuse University. Sloan taught at various universities, including Syracuse University and University of Dallas, until he settled as a Professor in Practice for the CAPPA community in 2005.
Sloan founded the Kevin Sloan Studio in 2004 to principally focus on urban design and landscape architectural problems of the metropolitan city. Sloan’s award-winning design studio has been nationally recognized for the new and unprecedented formation that has influenced the city.
Throughout the course of his career, Sloan has authored for many professional publications, such as Landscape Architecture and Texas Architect. Sloan has served as an author, source, or subject for numerous articles in the AIA Dallas’ Columns over the past decades. In early October, the City of Dallas named the 12th Street Connector Park the Kevin W. Sloan Park in honor of his numerous contributions to the city of Dallas.
In recognition of Sloan’s influence on the City of Dallas, AIA Dallas has produced a list of his numerous contributions throughout the North Texas region. “Kevin’s immense intellectual curiosity, passion for North Texas, and inquisitive and innovative spirit will be deeply missed” by AIA Dallas, North Texas, and the CAPPA Community as we await pending service arrangements.
