This Greyt Big Talk is dedicated to next-generation leadership for the Built Environment in Cleveland. 

Maya Madison is an architect at Robert P. Madison International, where she brings a unique perspective to her designs, emphasizing community and public service. A graduate of Syracuse University with a Bachelor of Architecture degree, Maya sees architecture as a vital art form crucial to human well-being. Hailing from Shaker Heights, she comes from a lineage of architects, including her great uncle, the first black architect in Ohio, and both her parents.

Maya has played key roles in designing performing arts centers, residential buildings, skyscrapers, airports, and more in only a decade as a practicing architect, a celebrated and accomplished young leader transforming the built environments of tomorrow. While she has worked on major developments, Maya finds her greatest fulfillment in collaborating with BIPOC developers, entrepreneurs, and underserved communities. She takes pride in creating spaces that empower and represent these communities, enhancing the cultural fabric of their surroundings.
