Wayne L. Gordon III
After beginning his architecture career in his home state of Virginia, Wayne came west for graduate studies and has remained in Utah since. An advocate and expert in historic preservation, Wayne also recognizes that as knowledge and technology advance, new as well as timeless ideas can be incorporated and often used together harmoniously. His depth of experience and attention to detail creates elegant design solutions for a broad range of project types that AMD serves. When not architecting, Wayne likes to play music. He often performs with his wife at convalescent homes, senior centers, and such, to entertain those who are isolated from society.
