Jeff Ziebarth

Principal, Higher Education, Minneapolis

At an early age, Jeff knew he wanted to create things. From tree forts and elaborate rector sets, to his high school years working in construction, Jeff’s language quickly became making, creativity, and building. One week into the engineering program at the University of Minnesota, a destined walk through Ralph Rapson Hall led Jeff to switch majors into what would become his life’s passion—architecture.

Out of college, Jeff worked primarily in higher education, specifically 15 years on the Notre Dame campus, learning the ins and outs of higher education planning and design, and garnering an appreciation for how institutional clients viewed architecture. He noticed the appreciation they gave to the investigative work architects performed during the strategic, programming, and planning phases. Since then, his focus on learning environments and business education facilities has centered on strategic programming and planning efforts that maximize design potential and client success.
