Our Roots
Our founding principals John Jackson, AIA and Bob Galloway, AIA began working together in college and name among their early mentors AIA Gold Medalists Fay Jones, Charles Moore, and Cambridge Seven Associates. John worked and studied under both Jones and Moore during his early career, and their rich legacy of distinctive American architecture continues to inform our studio’s design sensibilities. Bob gained a wealth of experience working on educational, athletic, commercial, community, aquarium, and transportation facilities early in his career at Cambridge Seven Associates, Inc. in Massachusetts. The American Institute of Architects awarded Cambridge Seven the 1993 Gold Medal, while Bob was serving the firm as an associate in charge of their technical review process.
        In 1997 John and Bob began their practice in Austin, and have maintained a 12 to 16 member staff since 2002. Our firm size allows direct principal involvement on each project, offering our clients all the experience and expertise of a large firm, in the personal attention and service of a small firm. In 2009 Ponciano Morales III, AIA joined forces with the JGA team after serving as president of Morales & Associates, Architects, Inc. for the previous fifteen years. Ponciano brings to our team 40 years of experience working on public, commercial, and university projects in Texas.

What are Architects?
In essence, we are place makers. We design places for people to inhabit as they work, sleep, eat, play, gather, and retreat. We are convinced that the quality of the physical places where people live their life has a huge impact on the quality of that life; and so we dedicate the work of our hands to creating more beautiful, durable, safe, useful, healthy places for our community.
         But that is not a simple task. There are many hats we must wear along the way to accomplish our work. An architect is an explorer, a researcher, an artist, and a presenter. We are problem solvers, team managers, analysts, planners, and inspectors. A good architect is also a scientist in the field of building methods & technology, and a seasoned guide to the construction industry.

How can we help you?
Tell us your story. What needs are you experiencing? What are your facility priorities? We can help you determine your real constraints, and how to work within them. What is your dream for the future? We will work with you to develop a long-term master plan that will inform decisions about what you need now vs. later, and how a specific project fits (or does not fit) into that plan.
        We have been doing this for a long time. It’s what we love to do; and we continually improve the tools and methodologies we use in our professional service.
