Ward Isaacson is passionate about the business of architecture, the impact of good design, and the continued growth of Pope Architects. He is driven by fostering client and industry relationships, and working collaboratively through the unique challenges and opportunities of each project.

For Ward, Pope Architects’ success is because of our people. In his role, Ward works with Pope’s entire team to shape a culture that promotes inclusivity and diversity for employees. His leadership is shaped by the core values of customer service, collaboration, quality design, and an entrepreneurial spirit (while having some fun too). In addition to overseeing all aspects of the firm’s diverse work, Ward serves as Principal in Charge of Pope’s senior living and housing practice.

Ward enjoys spending time at the cabin with family and friends, getting outdoors, golfing, working on the inevitable next phase of home remodeling, and feeding his unhealthy obsession of local sports teams and the Iowa State Cyclones.
