About 

I'm Logan Dumont, an architectural designer, world traveler and IPA connoisseur. I was born and raised in a small town in Northern California that consisted of three traffic lights and a drive-in theater. I attended San Diego State University for my undergraduate studies of city planning and beach lounging. Upon graduating, I moved to Los Angeles where I worked as an account manager for post-production companies before deciding to pursue my masters in architecture at the University of Southern California, graduating with honors this past May, 2017.

Beyond the scope of architecture, I love to keep an active lifestyle with any board sport (think surf, skate, snow or wake). On the weekends, you can catch me at a new art exhibit, hiking a trail for that picture perfect view, or trying a new craft beer at one of the many micro breweries seeming to pop up everywhere. When time permits, I seek out different travel destinations, whether it be international or the next state over. They tend to be based around my love for both the natural and built environment, where I always make the journey as important as the destination. In my travels, I have learned to see culture as the greatest intangible asset anyone can come across, which is why I believe traveling helps shape our discipline, our reasoning, and most importantly, ourselves for the better.

I am seeking a firm that holds collaboration highly in its values and who still embraces the importance of models. Yes, physical models. With so much of our work now digital, I believe it's indispensable to the practice of architecture to explore model making. From the quick-and-dirty to the presentation-ready, models help to better understand the importance of context, materiality and space. The firm should also highly believe in blending nature with the built environment, whether it be literally or figuratively, by bringing the outdoors in, and the indoors out.

MacDowell Colony Peterborough Riverwalk Park Design Competition, 2nd Place

Adjunct Associate Professor Jennifer Siegal and a team including Professor Kelly Shannon and five USC graduate architecture and landscape architecture students were recently shortlisted for the Peterborough Riverwalk Park Design Competition.

The aim of the competition is to create a park and public space at the heart of the town of Peterborough, New Hampshire. The competition is a joint effort between the town and the MacDowell Colony, located in Peterborough.

“Confluence Park,” Siegal’s team’s submission, incorporates sustainability, ecology, and a deep understanding of the town’s historical, cultural context. Siegal, herself, is a native of Peterborough and grew up “hoping to be a MacDowell fellow,” which she achieved in 2004.
