Charles F. McAfee, FAIA
Founder, CEO & Managing Principal
CFM - Architects Planners Program Managers

Arguably the most important African American architect in the United States, Mr. Charles F. McAfee of Wichita, Kansas has used his architectural genius and design to create jobs for Urban America. After receiving his B.S. from the University of Nebraska, Mr. McAfee began his career in the early 1960's. McAfee has developed and sustained Charles F. McAfee Architects and Planners with offices in Wichita- Kansas, Atlanta -Georgia and Dallas -Texas. He supports the "B.U.I.L.D. Vision".

The diversity and breadth of McAfee's career distinguishes him in his field. Throughout his career, he has been affiliated with countless architectural and urban planning projects, many receiving national recognition. McAfee's projects range from institutional facilities (renovation of Oklahoma School District 89) to transportation structures (Atlanta's North Line Midtown Station), religious structures (Wichita's Calvary Baptist Church) to recreational facilities (McAdams Park), in addition to housing and commercial facilities.

The significance of a regional structure, like Kansas' first national black historical society, is as striking as McAfee's national projects. His firm's projects have included the design and construction of FAA/NADIN computer facilities as well as design consultation and construction management of facilities for the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta.

In recognition of his distinguished career, McAfee has been the recipient of countless awards and distinctions, including the American Institute of Architects, Federal Housing Administration's First Honor Award. He serves on numerous professional and civic boards of directors, including the Catholic Social Services and the National Business League. He also served as the president of the National Organization of Minority Architects and Midwestern president of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity.

McAfee maintains his commitment to Urban Economic Empowerment by providing mentorship to minority architects, planners and minority developers such as B.U.I.L.D. Management, LLC. His daughters, Cheryl McAfee-Mitchell and Charyl McAfee-Duncan, who run family offices in Atlanta and Dallas are his pride and joy and a living testiment to his infuence and his ability to inspire greatness. McAfee is married to Gloria Winston McAfee, a dedicated educator and community leader.
