Timothy Gray is an architect, educator and environmental advocate with extensive expertise in sustainable design. Since coming to Ball State University from the California College of the Arts in 2004, Tim has led multiple undergraduate studios which have resulted in a variety of community-based design–build projects, working with multiple community partners such as Indianapolis Food Bank, Butler University, and the near east side Legacy Center.

In addition to his teaching Timothy has an active practice, Gray Architecture, which was established in 1995 and has completed a broad range projects both in Indianapolis and beyond, including the recently renovated Hotel Broad Ripple.
