He brings fresh perspective to large mixed-use projects
36, Principal
Bialosky + Partners

David Craun's interest in urban design, planning and architecture has propelled a career dedicated to the design of vertically integrated mixed-use developments, including the acclaimed Crocker Park, a 4-million-sq-ft facility in Westlake, Ohio, that combines offices, shops, restaurants and residences with social and recreational uses. As an adjunct professor with Kent State University's College of Architecture and Environmental Design, Craun encourages students to develop design philosophies while schooling them in the basics. His concern for the betterment of communities has taken him to Malawi and Madagascar, where he engaged in social work. Closer to home, Craun participates in design charrettes for the Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative, which engages students, professors and community members in local design issues.
