Wyck Knox


Associate Principal

Over the course of his 15 years of architectural practice, Wyck has worked for several renowned architectural firms, including Burt Hill, HLM Design, and HNTB. In his 10 years with VMDO, Wyck has served as a project architect and manager for VMDO’s most highly acclaimed K12 projects – those incorporating innovative design measures relating to sustainability, environmental stewardship, and novel learning environments for today’s “New Learner.”

Wyck was the Project Architect and Manager of the $29.8 million Manassas Park Elementary School & Pre-K – the recipient of a prestigious AIA Committee on the Environment “Top Ten Green Project” award. This project also received the 2011 Shirley Cooper Award, given annually by the American Association of School Administrators to a U.S. school judged as providing the most outstanding educational environment that best meets the educational needs of its students. The USGBC’s Center for Green Schools routinely promotes Manassas Park as a national model for sustainability and the ‘building-as-a-teaching-tool’ concept.

Wyck’s first two school projects with VMDO were the second and third LEED Gold public K12 schools in Virginia. His most recent project, Arlington’s Discovery Elementary School, is anticipated to become the first net-zero energy school in the Mid-Atlantic and the largest in the United States. Wyck currently serves on the Green Schools National Network’s Catalyst Editorial Board.
