Mr. Rogan has maintained a diverse, independent practice since 1986, including renovations, restorations, planning and new construction projects.  He has provided design consultation to commercial, institutional, professional and private clients throughout the United States and abroad. 

William began his career in New Orleans in 1975 while earning his degree at Tulane University, working as a model builder for the Louis Armstrong Park Project; he was later retained as a design consultant.  He also supervised the construction of his thesis project, Karen Cottage, on the grounds of the Magnolia School, during this period.

In 1979, he relocated to New York and joined the firm of Russo+Sonder Architects, then an expanding health-care practice.  Advancing to Senior Associate during his tenure, Rogan introduced an historic preservation component to the practice, earning awards for completed projects.   Turning a fresh eye to health-care design, he managed, designed and earned awards for several hospital projects completed in the Northeast, and participated as well in the design of educational facilities at Brown, Vanderbilt and Yale Universities.  On establishing his own practice in 1986, Mr. Rogan continued to consult with his former firm (later acquired by Perkins & Will) and with their clients. He collaborated with other professional firms, added new commercial clients, and maintained an active residential practice.

Since 2002, Rogan has led design studios in architecture and interior design at New York Institute of Technology, and collaborated on housing schemes in Queenstown, New Zealand, Atlanta, Georgia, and in several cities in China. 

He has participated in educational programs in Thailand and Cambodia, as well as design competitions and architectural consultation in mainland China.

Mr. Rogan has resided in China since 2006.
