AIA, LEED AP®
William Randy McGee is a Design Principal with 20 years of experience at ZGF. He brings a fresh creative design approach to each project that results in buildings that are born of the specific place, promote cultural and resource sustainability, and experiment with clever solutions celebrating the craft of building with an authentic sensitivity to time, place, and budget. He enjoys the fresh perspective of working at a broad range of scales, ranging from the modest project to extremely complex institutions with multiple stakeholders, all based on an authentic sensitivity appropriate to its time, place, and budget. His skill in listening carefully to the aspirational and functional needs of the client, observing the specific community context, and artfully responding with authentic sustainable solutions results in a timeless architecture that resonates with the optimistic and intrinsic values of the people that occupy them. His work has been the recipient of multiple AIA and international design awards for recently completed projects such as Pearl Izumi Headquarters in Boulder, CO; the Robert Mondavi Institute for Wine and Food Science at UC Davis; the Li Ka Shing Center at UC Berkeley; the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, MA; EPA Headquarters in Denver, CO; the US Embassy in Vientiane, Laos; and the Legacy CUP in Portland, OR. Current projects include the US Embassy in Asuncion, Paraguay; the US Embassy in Havana, Cuba; the Portland International Airport Terminal Expansion; and the Great Notion Brewery in Portland, OR. Licensed in Oregon and Colorado, Randy received a Bachelor of Architecture from Mississippi State University.
