Much of Karl Sonnenberg's career has been focused on the planning and design of healthcare facilities across the country. For more than three decades, his varying roles as Partner-in-Charge, Project Manager, Senior Urban Designer or Medical Planner have enhanced his ability to work with complex user groups and diverse constituencies at academic medical centers like Oregon Health & Science University or for healthcare providers such as Kaiser Permanente, Providence Health & Services, and Legacy Health. Karl works hard to translate operational and facility needs into flexible, healing environments that are sensitive to the needs of both patients and staff. He has also developed master plans for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, Children’s Hospital Colorado in Denver, Seattle Children’s Hospital, and the National Institutes of Health. His background in urban design complements the need of hospitals to meet medical goals while being sensitive to zoning and neighborhood issues. Karl is past-chair and current member of the AIA Architecture for Health Panel of the Northwest, a founding member of the American College of Healthcare Architects (ACHA), and a member of the American Society for Healthcare Engineering (ASHE). He received a Bachelor of Architecture from Ball State University.
