College of Environmental Design (CED) alumnus Greg Johnson (BA Architecture ‘86) was named the new managing director of global architecture and design at Perkins+Will’s San Francisco studio. Johnson, who has been working with the firm since February of 2016, brings more than 25 years of experience to Perkins+Will and has experience directing the design and development of public, private, and nonprofit projects in the Bay Area.
“The San Francisco Bay Area represents an urban center generating the great ideas that are shaping the future. I am thrilled to take this opportunity to lead our diverse and talented team, and to continue to engage with our clients on innovative projects in San Francisco and throughout the Bay Area,” Johnson said.
As Johnson has occupied the roles of both architect and director for numerous local projects, he has the unique ability to merge design strategies with the needs of the project sponsor. Sharing this background with the Perkins+Will design team will allow the firm to view projects through a truly holistic perspective.
Johnson’s body of work includes prominent projects in the Bay Area including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA), 706 Mission Street/Mexican Museum, 1500 Mission Street/Goodwill development, the Bay Area Discovery Museum and 1700 Webster Street in Oakland. He is also a member of the American Institute of Architects, the Urban Land Institute, and a Board Member at SPUR (San Francisco Planning and Urban Research).
“The possibilities in the Bay Area are limitless, and I am eager to work with each of our clients to deliver cutting edge, sustainable, and beautiful designs,” Johnson said.
