A founding Principal of LEDDY MAYTUM STACY Architects in San Francisco, William Leddy, FAIA, believes that architecture has an important role to play in leading our communities toward a just, carbon-neutral future for all.

For 30 years Leddy has been a national leader in the design of regenerative architecture that celebrates our place in the natural world. His firm has received over 150 regional, national and international design awards and has been recognized by numerous organizations including the American Institute of Architects, the French Institute of Architects, the Norwegian Association of Architects, the U.S. Department of Energy, and the Urban Land Institute. LMSA is one of only two firms in the nation to have received ten or more AIA COTE Top Ten Green Project awards. Leddy has lectured widely and served as visiting professor at the Southern California Institute of Architecture, the University of California, Berkeley, the California College of the Arts and the University of Oregon. Leddy was elected to the American Institute of Architects College of Fellows in 2003 and has served on the National AIA Committee on the Environment Advisory Group (as chair in 2013) and the AIA California Council Committee on the Environment.
