Dennis Allain, AIA is an award winning architect, artist, and designer. He was born in Salem, Massachusetts in 1967 and from an early age, demonstrated an unshakeable desire to create.
Dennis earned a Bachelor of Architecture from Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston, MA. He also studied architecture at the Societe Dante Alighieri, while living in Venice, Italy. Upon returning to Boston, Dennis found his first true professional creative opportunity as a draftsman at the prominent interior design firm of Bierly-Drake. There he honed an exacting eye, and indulged himself in the design, development, and craft of exceptional high-end spaces. Meanwhile, his love of illustration found an even purer outlet in his providing artistic and graphic content for the now defunct Martyr Press comics.
From 1992 to the present, he has been employed by two of the largest and most successful privately-held architectural firms in Boston, CBT/ Childs Bertman Tseckares and Elkus/Manfredi Architects LTD. It has been his tenor at Elkus/Manfredi that Dennis found his greatest opportunity yet as an architect, designer, and illustrator.
In the crucible that is formed by the combination of creative design, architecture, and an unmerciful schedule, Dennis has developed a personal style which is among the first true fusions of traditional media, digital paint, and 3D modeling.
Today he continues to design and illustrate both in and outside the profession of architecture.
