Alyson Reuter

Senior Architect Alyson Reuter AIA, has 15 years of experience working on large-scale, complex architectural projects including residential and commercial buildings, educational facilities, and theaters.

With her background in both engineering and architecture, Alyson has proven to be a valuable part of the team on several AS+GG projects, acting as a liaison between consultant engineers.

Recently she was the Team Leader for the podium and retail teams for Burj 2020, a mixed-use development featuring a signature supertall tower, a commercial building, and six mixed-use residential and hotel towers.

Prior to working at AS+GG, Alyson has lived in New York, Florida, San Antonio, and Boston before settling in Chicago. As a natural problem solver, she considers each project as a unique puzzle and takes great joy in the daily experience of translating the design architect’s vision into reality.
