Greg Otto

Principal
Structures

Having practiced both architecture and engineering, Greg brings a distinctive perspective to design. His multi-disciplinary background empowers him to work collaboratively across discipline silos to find holistic solutions and deliver meaningful design innovation. During his career of over 19 years, he has developed a significant portfolio of work that ranges from small, art-centric projects to large-scale commercial, stadia, cultural, airport, and mixed-use projects, with the common denominator being the tight integration of design and engineering. His specialties include long-span structures, tensioned fabric/membrane structures, and building façade engineering and design. Greg’s higher education includes a Master of Science in Civil Engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from Cooper Union, and a Bachelor of Architecture from Kansas State University.
