John A. Coons



“Design is for you and me—for us. It’s not some abstraction springing wholly out of self. As Hugh Stubbins once said, ‘If only architects like it and the public hates it, it is an architectural failure.”

As a Principal, John offers more than 30 years of experience in planning, design, project management and business development, with public, private and corporate clients all across the nation. His campus project experience includes learning environments, student housing, dining commons, student centers, recreation/wellness centers, parking structures and campus master plans. John earned his Master of Architecture at the University of New Mexico, School of Architecture and Planning, and he received his Bachelor of Arts at Bowdoin College.

Advice John Still Lives By:
“You might not get rich being an architect, but the profession allows you to live richly.”
