Michael Becherer, AIA


Michael joined Swaim Associates in 2016 and became a principal in 2019. He has worked with numerous architectural firms throughout his 30 year career, working in both Arizona and Kentucky. He also has a background as a general contractor, giving him unique insight into the construction process that brings our firm’s designs to life. He specializes in projects within the public sector, including higher education, public safety, public works projects, and manages many of our downtown development projects. 

Michael excels in gaining a deep understanding of what clients need to realize their vision and get the most out of any given project. He has a passion for collaborating with various stakeholders to create a shared project vision that enhances users’ experiences and the overall built environment, as well as the community it serves. Michael also has a unique talent for condensing complex ideas into simple diagrams to help move along the collaborative process of formulating a project design. 

When he’s not at the office, Michael is most likely at home with his wife and their pack of chihuahuas. He enjoys freehand drawing and playing guitar, and he is an adjunct instructor of architecture design at CAPLA.
