Luanne Greene FAIA, LEED AP
As president of Ayers Saint Gross since 2016, Luanne Greene believes that design can improve the lives of individuals and strengthen communities. Her collaborative vision for the firm centers on elevating design, reducing carbon, integrating data to support decision making, and advancing equity in all forms.
Luanne has the training of an architect and a passion for planning and figuring out how smaller details can come together to form something great. She is a strong advocate for innovative and sustainable planning strategies that address the needs of both institutions and their surrounding communities for years to come.
She has worked on design and planning projects with numerous colleges and universities across the nation, including the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Ohio State University, and Washington University in St. Louis. She has also contributed to the renewal of several high profile, iconic American treasures by completing a master plan and designs for the Missouri Botanical Garden Visitor Center and a series of master plans for the Smithsonian Institution’s National Zoo, National Air and Space Museum, National Museum of American History, and Pan-Institutional Collections Space.
In addition to her more than 30 years of work with Ayers Saint Gross, Luanne is a member of the Society for College & University Planning, a fellow in the American Institute of Architects, and is active in the Baltimore community.
When it comes to design, Luanne believes the process is as important as the finished product and that means building an atmosphere of mutual trust and respect. An advocate for those who can’t speak for themselves, she enjoys bringing stakeholders together to dream big: creating bold, optimistic, and shared visions for the future.
