Leading the Tipton Team since 1983, Ken Tipton serves as Project Architect on numerous architectural and planning projects. Under his leadership, Tipton Associates has grown from a local firm to one that works nationally, in more than 30 states.

As an adjunct professor since 1988, member of the Advisory Board at LSU School of Architecture, and past president of AIA Baton Rouge and AIA Louisiana, he has been faithful to lifelong learning and teaching opportunities, and passionate about designing to make a lasting impact. Asked to identify his prominent qualities, close colleagues suggested: compassionate, visionary, untiring, mindful, generous, humble and unifying. In partnering with Ken on a project, you can expect him to be all of these things in perpetuity. He guides others to recognize community and the life of the space far beyond the life of its initial users.
