John N. Cryer III FAIA

Board of Directors / Emeritus


As if being senior principal at a well-known architectural firm weren’t distinctive enough, John Cryer also personifies his firm’s vision of being an influential champion for design that makes lives better. His support of ongoing revitalization in downtown Houston, involvement in community organizations and leadership on many of Page’s major urban projects have contributed to a thriving economic district that has become a place frequently lauded by national, top tier media as a place to live and work.

John’s confidence in the downtown area’s potential to again be the hub for Houston’s corporate community led him to relocate Page’s offices there years before other large design firms moved to the central business district. The firm’s innovative design in a seven-story commercial atrium was subsequently featured in The Tree of Life, a Terence Malick film starring Brad Pitt and Sean Penn, and has even served as a performance space. He also moved his family to one of the first renovated residential lofts downtown before amenities such as grocery stores were available.
