Joel Fidler is a principal at Ayers Saint Gross with more than 20 years of experience designing and managing architectural projects.

Joel prides himself on taking a client-driven approach to his work and finding comprehensive design solutions uniquely tailored with their best interests in mind.
Joel is most proud of his projects that will make a meaningful impact on the lives of others or give them a new appreciation for the world around them. Some favorite projects include a series of buildings for the Maryland School for the Blind, the Fred W. Smith National Library for the Study of George Washington, the Sagamore Spirit Distillery and Visitor Center, and the Jack C. Taylor Visitor Center at the Missouri Botanical Garden.
