RICHMOND, VA — Quinn Evans, a national planning and design firm, announces the promotion of three professionals to principal. Susan Pryor and Shannon Wray, based in the Richmond, Virginia, office, and Julia Siple, based in Washington, D.C., have joined the firm’s team of principals.

Susan Pryor, AIA, LEED AP BD+C, serves as the Operational Director of the firm’s Richmond office. Pryor has more than 25 years of architectural experience, with expertise in the design of 21st century learning environments, including complex renovations. In Virginia, she is currently leading the renovation and expansion of Spotsylvania Middle School and the Southeast Community Resource Area Development Plan in Newport News. “Susan has done a masterful job strengthening the team and fostering creative energy and stability in our Richmond office. It’s really impressive what they have accomplished so far this year,” said Quinn Evans CEO Alyson Steele, FAIA, LEED AP.

Pryor holds a Master of Architecture (2002) from the Georgia Institute of Technology and a Bachelor of Science in Architecture (1997) from the University of Virginia. She is a member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA).

Shannon Wray, CID, IIDA, LEED AP, designs community-responsive interiors for libraries, schools, higher education, and civic facilities. “It’s rare that a designer this skilled and experienced demonstrates the curiosity, care, and empathy that Shannon weaves into her work. I’m excited to see what she does next,” Steele said. Wray’s projects in the greater Richmond area have included the Fairfield Area Library in Henrico County, the Chesterfield Career and Technical Center @Hull, and Fluvanna High School.

Wray holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interior Design (1999) from Virginia Commonwealth University. She is a member of the American Library Association, the Association for Learning Environments (A4LE), and the Commercial Interior Design Association.

She is an inspiration to our practice,” Steele said. She has guided sustainable outcomes for projects of all scales, including the Sully Woodlands Stewardship Education Center in Fairfax, Virginia, the firm’s first Living Building Challenge project; and the Compound in Baltimore, a Passive House project.
