A life-long New Yorker, Gia Mainiero has always been captivated by the intricate and interrelated systems that make urban life possible. Her determination to garner a big picture understanding of how things work and her commitment to professional development have led her to manage many of the firm’s infrastructure and transportation projects. Her extensive fieldwork experience has granted her the unparalleled opportunity to see large projects realized from start to finish, and to closely observe all aspects of the architectural process. Through her work, Gia strives to provoke others to notice and engage with vital, yet often underappreciated services and building types. She is passionate about sharing her enthusiasm for public architecture, actively mentoring young students interested in pursuing professions in design and construction.
Gia holds a Bachelor of Architecture from The Cooper Union, Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture.
