Greg Johnson

AIA, LEED AP BD+C
Principal, Managing Director, San Francisco

Greg began building his architectural toolkit at an early age—a T-square ruler as a 12th birthday present, and a full set of drafting materials for his 18th. Frequently covering the dining room table with his sketches of houses, it seemed inevitable that Greg would become an architect.

He parlayed his childhood love of design into a career that has included work as both the lead design architect, and as the director on the client side, which gives him a uniquely holistic perspective on the industry. As Managing Director of the San Francisco office, he hopes to inspire others to pursue their design passions by giving them the tools they need to succeed in the future.

Greg finds inspiration from his travels with his wife and daughter, cycling the California coastline, and continues to dream up new sketches.

“I love to read about history, strategy, and leadership—I’m constantly thinking about how to apply those principles to what I do every day.”

Greg made his impact on the city of San Francisco when he got the opportunity to manage Mario Botta’s new SFMOMA building—a project that incorporated his love of both art and design. When he wasn’t working on SFMOMA, Greg brought his project leadership talents to many other museums around the Bay Area including the Oakland Museum of California, the Walt Disney Family Museum, the Mexican Museum, and the Bay Area Discovery Museum.
