Gregory L. Strickland, AIASenior Associate
When did you know you wanted to be an architect/designer?
I was born this way. I come from three generations of contractors, and am a second-generation architect.
What’s the biggest highlight of your career?
I spent 10 years of my career on the design and construction administration of the NATO headquarters in Brussels while working at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. The building (finally) opened in May of 2017.
Do you have any hidden talents?
While all my classmates were interning at architectural firms during the summers, I was in the field swinging hammers and pouring concrete. I miss the hands-on work, but my house gives me plenty of renovation work to do.
What would Spotify say is your most-played track?
Anything from the Zac Brown Band.
What’s the best thing about working at Mancini Duffy?
I’ve worked at both large and small firms, and Mancini Duffy has all the best of both worlds! Here I get to work on jobs of all sizes, and best of all, share that work with some of the most talented individuals in our industry.
Any other interesting fact about you?
I’ve lived and worked in the architectural field in five states, and during that time I completed projects in six different countries on four continents.
