Todd Ray, FAIA, the firm’s newest principal in our Washington DC office. He will lead the design of commercial, residential, institutional and academic projects. Throughout his twenty-five year career, Todd’s focus on the human experience of architecture has produced buildings and spaces that are beautiful, high performing, innovative and, most of all, have a long-term positive impact on people and communities.
Page has had the opportunity to previously collaborate with Todd on projects, including his award-winning work on the STM Laboratory Renovation and Expansion at Gallaudet University, which showcases the symbiotic relationship between forward-thinking design, public interest architecture and environmental sustainability.
“Todd’s projects are modern, optimistic, crisp and efficient. They illustrate a rigorous and pragmatic approach to design—one which deftly balances a client’s mission, program, budget and the eccentricities of a site to produce an inspiring and functional building,” noted Thomas McCarthy, a Senior Principal at Page.
In addition to architectural practice, Todd advances the profession of architecture through original research. He co-authored (A)mending L’Enfant: Southwest DC, a volume that provides a comprehensive history of urban development in the southwest quadrant of the District. Todd is a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects and the recipient of several prestigious awards, including the John "Wieb" Wiebenson Award for Architecture in the Public Interest and the AIA National Young Architects Award.
Prior to joining Page, Todd was a partner at Studio Twenty Seven Architecture, a boutique architecture firm that he co-founded in 1999. He looks forward to working for a large firm with offices in every continental time zone and multidisciplinary resources.
