Jeffrey Gannon AIA, LEED GA

Jeff is motivated as an architect by the ability to achieve a positive impact on people with design. He enjoys solving technical- and organization-based problems, particularly as related to community and multi-purpose projects.

Jeff’s advocacy of community initiatives is supported by his record as one of PCA’s most intrepid volunteers. When he’s not designing PCA’s latest retail, multifamily and adaptive reuse projects, Jeff enjoys history, music, coaching and playing soccer and working on his “log cabin” home.

  • I was born  in Boston, grew up in southern New Hampshire, and now live in North Reading, MA.

  • My education  B.Arch and M.Arch, Northeastern University

  • Why PCA?  It's a fantastic place to grow as a professional and meet great people and make great friends.

  • My earliest design memory  I had joined an art class in high school, and we did an architecture project. I enjoyed it and realized I really enjoyed drawing and building (ie: LEGO and Lincoln Logs) while growing up so thought I'd give it a shot as a degree and career.

  • My favorite space  The Mercedes Benz Museum in Germany was the coolest building I've ever been in with impeccable design. My favorite (indoor) space will always be the Boston Public Library (Copley Square). It cemented my love for design and architecture during college as I spent a lot of time there.

  • The most inspiring part of my job is  creating spaces and buildings that help shape the public realm.

  • On my playlist  Classic Rock or '90s rock

  • If I could snap my fingers and become an expert in something, it would be  guitar playing.

  • A typical day for me is  very structured, almost always with some work, coffee and playing with my two sons.
