As a respected professional with 20 years of experience in the fields of architecture and sustainability, Veena Reddy believes her primary task as an architect is to create sustainable environments in which people will thrive, in all aspects of their lives. Her core values of aspiring to be socially responsible, and making ethical choices, allow her to be a trusted leader and an asset to every project. She is proud of her accomplishments in designing, reshaping, and modernizing integral urban architecture that enriches the community.
Along with creative problem-solving skills, her extensive technical experience on complex projects, her organization, and her discipline, make her a strong project manager. Veena knows, the most successful projects start with clearly defining the client’s visions and goals. Whether they be functional, aesthetic, cultural, sustainable, or financial goals, Veena systematically makes decisions to ensure all will be met.
While serving as a project manager keeps her busy, Veena makes time to impact change in the City of Louisville by donating her services to several nonprofit organizations, including Bookworks, YouthBuild, and the Bernheim Research Forest. The respect her community has for her talent, experience and passion are reflected in her appointment to several executive boards. She is on the International WELL Building Institute advisory board, the Louisville Sustainability Council board, and is a newly appointed member of the Kentucky Science Center Board, and the Bernheim Research Forest LAND Committee.
“It is an honor to help shape the urban fabric and identity of a city.” Veena says.
Outside of work
Veena loves being a mother, the great outdoors, travel, making artisanal ice cream, attending music and cultural festivals, and living an active lifestyle. Many are surprised at her energy and endurance and to learn she has competed in the Olympic trials for the marathon and completed several elite marathons, 100-mile and 24-hour races.
