Peg MacDonald


Principal, VIA—A Perkins Eastman Studio

"Human by Design encompasses the whole and ongoing life of a project. The most rewarding moments - and the best measures of livability - are found in returning to visit a project and seeing how people have adopted it, changed it, and made it grow."

With more than seventeen years of building documentation and construction administration experience, Peg is driven by good design, well-executed.

A naturally curious designer and solutions-oriented project manager, Peg brings a collaborative enthusiasm to each project. An intent listener, she seeks to understand the intricate influences and motivations behind her client’s goals, and then bring them to life while navigating approvals and construction processes at the same time.

Her extensive work on affordable housing with volunteer, non-profit, and community groups has informed projects that exemplify shared values and enhance livability for residents at all stages of their lives.

Our VIA—A Perkins Eastman Studio

As a principal at VIA Architecture, Peg is a calm, steadfast, and generous presence who works hard to ensure team successes through collaboration and mentorship.
