Gregory Kissel founded A359 Partners in Architecture in 2009. As president, he manages firm governance and continues to guide the firm as it grows. As part of A359’s collaborative design team, he leads project technical design and specifications.

As an expert on the resilience of buildings, Gregory has assessed almost half a billion dollars of disaster-stricken properties across the U.S. His roles for various clients include strategic real estate evaluation, feasibility and adaptive reuse assessments, building standards and development of comprehensive building remediation, renovation, and reconstruction programs.

Gregory’s goal for design-driven placemaking is to deliver robust, long-term performance, safety, resilience and sustainability for more livable buildings. With over 30 years of architectural experience, he maintains a keen attention to detail. For adaptive reuse projects, he strives to develop intelligent building strategies while preserving historical character.
