About Troy Ainsworth, AIA, NCARB, Principal, FFA Architecture and Interiors
Mr. Ainsworth is a licensed architect who has been working in Portland since graduating from William Fletcher’s Alma Mater, the University of Oregon in 1985. While growing up, Troy was inspired to apply to the UO School of Architecture and Allied Arts by the historic architecture of his hometown of LaGrande, the Eastern Oregon University campus, and his many experiments in the fine arts. He joined the firm of Fletcher Farr Ayotte (now FFA Architecture and Interiors) in 1992, and worked with Bill for the last five years of his career, until his death in 1998. Troy’s first major role with the firm was as one of the Project Managers on the expansion and rehabilitation of the Multnomah County Central Library, in Downtown Portland, which was completed in 1997. Since then, he has been active in all of FFA’s market sectors, but has always had a particular passion for Civic, Higher Education, and Historic Rehabilitation projects. He was named a Principal at the firm in 2007, and is thrilled to be involved in the on-going celebration of Bill’s work, the influence it’s had on regional architecture, and the impact it continues to have on the firm’s mission and values.
