Gregg Donovan is an architect in New York City, and he has also practiced extensively in Charlottesville, Virginia and Seattle, Washington. He holds degrees in Architecture (B.S.) and International Community Economic Development (M.S.).

For over thirty years, he has engaged in the analysis, design, construction, and rehabilitation of buildings and landscapes. His earliest professional experiences as a carpenter and project superintendent have evolved into a broad based career as an architect, builder, and construction administrator, utilizing unique contextual and field awareness to develop creative strategies in each role.

The eclectic breadth of his design and project management work to date, in both urban and rural environments, includes new construction and complex rehabilitation in projects demanding the rigors of both explicit surgical demolition and large scale demolition approaches.
Through numerous project-based relationships with public regulatory entities, social service agencies, non-profit organizations, developers, private individuals, building contractors, and design professionals, the layered complexities of successful project stewardship are well understood.

Through close project collaboration with architectural clients and stakeholders, and in professional staff positions within various firms and agencies, he has established project development skills and expertise in various building types (housing, public and commercial), with particular emphasis on residential work, and the critical relationship of site & landscape to successful building realization.
