Gregg Donovan is an architect in New York City. He has also practiced extensively in Charlottesville, Virginia, and Seattle, Washington. He earned a B.S. in Architecture from The University of Virginia, and a M.S. in International Community Economic Development from Southern New Hampshire University.
For over thirty years, he has been seduced by the study, design, building, demolition, and reconstruction of buildings and landscapes. His earliest professional experiences, as carpenter and builder, have evolved purposefully into a broad based career as architect and builder with unique contextual and construction awareness to inform his design strategies.
Complex rehabilitation work has provoked much of his design and construction enthusiasm, in projects demanding the rigors of explicitly surgical demolition and the blunt finesse of large scale demolition. Yet, both new design work and renovation can be similarly fascinating, and the overall breadth of projects thus far has been a heterogeneous mix of each type.
Through close collaboration with his architectural clients, and in professional staff positions within various firms and agencies, he has acquired problem-solving skills and expertise specific to design, project management, program development, regulatory compliance, and construction.
Through numerous project-based relationships with non-profit organizations, social service agencies, developers, private individuals, building contractors, and design professionals, the complexities of successful project execution are well understood.
He is enthusiastic about both his architectural work created to date and a renewed emphasis on sustainable, multifaceted community need-driven projects for diverse user groups. He values collaborative design and development relationships to generate and implement ideas, for those typically unable to access high quality services necessary to execute comprehensive, creative projects.
