Founded as Johnson Lasky Architects in 1992 by Walker Johnson and Larry Lasky, JLK is one of the most established preservation architecture firms in Chicago. Historic preservation has been an integral area of work since the firm’s inception. As Walker and Larry looked to ease into retirement in 2014, Meg took over to serve as owner and president. As the new president, Meg looked to strengthen JLK’s presence locally and earn work as a women-owned business.
Since Meg took over the firm, JLK has grown from 10 people to more than 20 staff and expanded into both the public and private sectors and transportation work. JLK is proud of 30 years of service to the architecture industry.
