    Gerry Tierney

    Gerry grew up next to the water just south of Dublin, Ireland. He seemed destined to become an architect—his father, brother, and cousin all were—but he very nearly chose another path. On the eve of the deadline to accept an offer from the Merchant Marine, he made a last-minute decision to accept an offer from architecture school, instead. Destiny, it turned out, had called. And so began Gerry’s lifelong journey into the world of design. Today, Gerry focuses on urban place-making. As Co-Director of Perkins & Will's Mobility Lab, which studies the impacts of evolving urban mobility on the public realm, Gerry has developed a passion for applying design thinking to the future of transportation.
