Robyn Savacool AIA


Associate Robyn Savacool joined CBP in 2019. After architecture school, she spent three years with the Peace Corps, in a concurrent graduate program that found her gathering photography for a thesis on place identity in Moldova. In her third year, she partnered with Eco Village, introducing sustainable and cooperative living concepts to one Moldovan town. Using predominantly local materials, such as straw bales, she helped build houses, confirming her interest in architecture with a decided emphasis on affordable housing. She strives to design thoughtful architecture that offers sustainability and dignity.

“Architects are a community in a community, and we have an obligation to the city and the profession.”

Fluent in Romanian, Robyn continues to be involved with the Peace Corps, recently teaching English via virtual classes. She volunteers as strategic planning consultant for Philadelphia’s Theatre Exile, participates in Women in Housing and Finance PA and the Building Industry Association (BIA) of Philadelphia, and supports Green Building United. She holds a Bachelor of Architecture from Wentworth Institute of Technology and a Master of Sociology from Illinois State University. Within CBP, Robyn leads the employee onboarding mentorship program and supports colleagues as they prepare for the licensure exam. She is registered in New Jersey.

A South Philadelphia resident, Robyn enjoys being outside as much as possible: napping in a hammock, rock climbing, or exploring Pennsylvania and New Jersey by bike. Playing strategic board games (Terraforming Mars is a favorite) helps keep her problem-solving skills sharp. Robyn regularly satisfies her wanderlust with lengthy stays in locations around the globe and never misses an opportunity to encourage family and friends to travel the world.
