Mary Jo Minerich

Associate

Whether the project is a new arts venue, a tiny café in a historic building, or envisioning how affordable housing can improve communities, Mary Jo’s design approach is rooted in empathy and research. In addition to leading GBBN’s approach to housing research and post occupancy evaluations, she works with clients and design teams to articulate project goals that positively impact community equity and resilience. Mary Jo has leveraged her expertise working in historic districts to facilitate conversations about how these districts can meet tomorrow’s needs while helping us explore our relationship with the past. Her recent work includes Willkommen, 5th and Dinwiddie West, and the Otto M. Budig Theater. A lover of big ideas and the deep conversations they generate, Mary Jo also loves talking about hiking, camping, and her three greyhounds.
