adbrew barresiAndrew Barresi

Principal, Roll Barresi & Associates
Cambridge, MA

Andrew provides overall design oversight and leadership for Roll Barresi & Associates. A problem solver by nature, he balances practical realism with an open minded sense of possibility. He brings equanimity to the design process with a particularly keen instinct for effective consensus building, bringing together groups of stakeholders and pinpointing actionable insights.

Known for his technical expertise and sophisticated design sensibility, Andrew has focused creatively on larger wayfinding projects, including a graphics system for Johns Hopkins University, Duke University, the Longwood Medical and Academic Area, Boston, the City of Salem, Massachusetts, and the City of Newport (Rhode Island). His work for Newport earned Andrew an award from the Society for Experiential Graphic Design, and several other of Andrew’s projects have been published in SEGD Design, College Planning & Management and Architectural Record.

Andrew began his career as an engineer but felt a strong pull towards art and design. The two strands converged in his work for the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, where he coordinated system-wide graphics and managed “Arts on the Line,” the organization’s public arts program. He left the MBTA in 1997 to join Roll Barresi & Associates and became the firm’s president in 2006.

Andrew received his Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from Wentworth Institute of Technology and his Certificate of Design in Graphic Design from Massachusetts College of Art and Design.

Sam Goatersam goater

Senior Transportation Associate, Project for Public Spaces
New York, NY

A licensed Professional Engineer, with ten years of broad civil and transportation engineering experience in the public and private sectors, Sam’s mission is to create places that get more kids on bikes.

Growing up riding bikes for fun, and for transportation, Sam developed a keen understanding of how street design affects road user behavior. After completing his Bachelor of Engineering in Civil Engineering at Southampton University (UK), he moved to America, and was amazed at how street design makes many places totally inaccessible to people walking or biking. Determined to put his engineering background to use to help redesign the streets and to get more kids on bikes, Sam has worked on Safe Routes to School initiatives, shared space and bike infrastructure projects, and even built a few pump tracks.

As a part of the PPS Transportation team, Sam is working to make sure decision makers understand that Streets are Places too.
