While Zhahn holds a Bachelor of Architecture from Iowa State University, he wanted to expand his perspective on how a building affects the spaces around it. To better understand the social economics of how architecture impacts a community, he returned to ISU to pursue a Master’s degree in community and regional planning.
His work at Slingshot allows him to integrate his two passions to affect a broader spectrum of individuals. Zhahn enjoys knowing that so many of the spaces he’s admired and utilized around Des Moines were Slingshot projects, and looks forward to being part of the city’s continued growth with future projects.
Outside of the office, Zhahn enjoys reading science fiction books and walking his dog.
