Nathan Hicks joined Silman in 2009 as the recipient of the Robert Silman Fellowship for Preservation Engineering. As a part of the fellowship, he spent six months at the National Trust for Historic Preservation, working at the headquarters in Washington, DC, with the Historic Sites Department.
Since returning to Silman after the fellowship, Nathan’s projects have ranged from large to small, including renovations and modernizations of historic buildings, new construction, schools, and private residential projects. A few architecturally significant buildings he has worked on include the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC; the Rotunda at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, VA; Richmond Old City Hall in Richmond, VA; Michigan Central Station in Detroit, MI; and the Carter G. Woodson Home National Historic Site in Washington, DC. In 2021, Nathan relocated to Silman’s new Los Angeles office.
