Winey wins another honor
Friday, October 22nd, 2010
Daniel Winey, BSAr’74, BAr’75, can add another trophy to the growing list of recent accolades, the Distinguished Architecture Alumni Award from Lawrence Tech. He accepted the award and gave a presentation on his career in October.
In June, Winey was inducted into the College of Fellows of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) in June. Last year he was named an affiliate professor because of the role he is playing in the development of Lawrence Tech’s relationship with Chinese architecture firms and schools of architecture. He also received the University’s alumni achievement award in 2009.
Winey is managing principal of the Pacific Northwest and Asia Region for San Francisco-based Gensler, a global architecture, design, planning and consulting firm. He has directed high-profile Gensler projects such as the Shanghai Tower, the second-tallest building in the world at 2,073 feet scheduled for completion in 2014.
Winey has been a member of Gensler’s management committee since 1993 and the board of directors for the past nine years. He is chairperson of the firm’s executive committee, which is focused on developing Gensler’s strategic plan, firm governance, and design excellence.
Having gained experience from opening offices in Tokyo, Shanghai and Beijing, Winey has helped the firm develop global practices and open new offices in other countries and here in the United States.
He is an accredited professional in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), and under his leadership Gensler has made LEED certification a requirement for all architects in its U.S. offices.
