Richard A. Ayers joined the firm in 1969 to practice architecture alongside his father and Kelsey Saint. In 1984, the architects recruited Adam Gross to boost the design profile of the practice and build a reputation for award-winning projects such as the Physics and Astronomy Building at Johns Hopkins University. In 1985, Dick Ayers retired and the name of the firm was changed to Ayers Saint Gross. Saint retired two years later, just as Jim Wheeler joined the firm as marketing director. This successful transition testifies to the consistent quality of work established by the original partners and enhanced through each succeeding generation.
