Jeff Williams

Associate Principal, Urban Design, Atlanta

For as long as he can remember, Jeff has been interested in the arts. As a child, he lived in and traveled to various countries – making it as far as India by the age of 12. By the time he entered college, a career in architecture and design was squarely in his sights. Enamored with the eclectic cities of his childhood (and a motivational professor or two), Jeff discovered his passion for city planning and urban design.

As a versatile urban designer with experience in both the public and private sector, Jeff has been responsible for leading some of the firm’s largest and most complex projects, each demanding a balance between disciplines and scales.

Originally from Florida, Jeff traveled the world before landing in Atlanta, a pastime he continues to this day. In his spare time, you’ll find him visiting new cities or relaxing in the mountains.

"Design is how humans solve problems and fight mundanity. As a bonus, it can also be a good bit of fun."
