EA425: Leah Bayer – When Small Firms Merge

When Small Firms Merge

Leah Alissa Bayer, President of Operations & Culture of Architects FORA, is passionate about improving the quality of other people's lives by fostering connections and positive experiences. Skilled in creative business management and storytelling, Leah designs systems and teams that are transparent, equitable, and healthy, which then carries into the architecture that she creates.

Prior to joining Architects FORA, Leah founded an award-winning, 100% women-led, virtual firm, EVIA Studio, creating housing along the Pacific Coast. She also worked for world-renown Perkins+Will and designed multifamily developments in the Bay Area during her early career after graduating from Cal Poly SLO with a Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch) and a Minor in Fine Arts.

Passionate about volunteering, Leah is AIA Silicon Valley's 2021-2022 Vice President/President-Elect, AIA California Board member, Chair of the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) Experience Committee, and Co-Chair for the upcoming 2022 AIA National Women's Leadership Summit.
