Todd Ray FAIA, LEED AP
Todd Ray, FAIA, is an award-winning designer of commercial, residential, institutional and academic projects. Throughout his career, Todd’s focus on the human experience of architecture has produced buildings and spaces that are beautiful, high performing, innovative and, most of all, projects that have a long-term positive impact on people and communities. His impressive portfolio of award-winning work—from the Mundo Verde Bilingual Public Charter School to the STM Laboratory Renovation and Expansion at Gallaudet University—showcases the symbiotic relationship between forward-thinking design, public interest architecture and environmental sustainability.
Other projects express Todd’s investment in architecture in the public realm or for the public interest. His pavilions at the Washington DC Union Station Bus Terminal are a modern foil to the Beaux Arts majesty of the main train station. Through bold color, whimsical shapes and inserted objects, the design transforms a forlorn pass-through space into an inviting destination in its own right. A 2018 AIA Committee on the Environment Top Ten award winner, his Mundo Verde project transformed a derelict urban school site into a model of sustainable design and a teaching tool for environmental stewardship.
Todd enjoys the benefits of working on a variety of opportunities at Page. He explained, “With offices across the country and projects around the world, Page has deep and broad expertise across numerous services, project types and geographies. The firm’s reach and diversity open up numerous professional opportunities.”
In addition to architectural practice, Todd advances the profession of architecture through original research. He co-authored (A)mending L’Enfant: Southwest DC, a volume that provides a comprehensive history of urban development in the southwest quadrant of the District, beginning with the introduction of L’Enfant’s plan in 1791.
Todd is a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects and the recipient of several prestigious awards, including the John “Wieb” Wiebenson Award for Architecture in the Public Interest and the AIA National Young Architects Award. Prior to joining Page, Todd was a partner at Studio Twenty Seven Architecture, a boutique architecture firm that he co-founded in 1999.
