Always of an explorative mind, Craig finds fulfillment in discovery and learning new subjects. Whether it be a nature documentary or a science podcast, Craig always seeks to learn a new fact for the day. While studying at the Oklahoma State University's School of Architecture, Craig branched his studies into many diverse subjects including, 19th-century German history, conservation of natural resources, 19th-century art history, history of rock and roll, and international beverage education. His love of exploration pairs with his love to travel. Some of his favorite adventures include skiing the Rockies in Colorado, camping in swags in the Australian Outback, and scotch tasting through the Scottish Highlands.

Craig Poor
When Craig isn’t learning, he likes relaxing with his dog Louie, having a cocktail by the pool, biking the trails of Dallas, and playing Dungeons and Dragons with his nerdy friends.

Craig also has a keen interest in computer graphics, modeling and animation programs. Craig leads our computer rendering efforts while also exploring other virtual reality programs and hardware devices that can further enhance the client experience in support of new architectural discoveries and design.

During his time at Glenn|Partners, Craig has been involved in the design for Fort Worth ISD’s Amon Carter Riverside High School along with time spent on Southern Methodist’s Westcott Soccer and Track Complex.

First Moment when you realized you wanted to be an Architect

I didn’t realize it until its too late. Senior year, my most challenging classes were ones with projects and deadlines. Those were the classes I liked. Graphic Design, Yearbook, Art, Calculus.
