Beth has managed an extensive variety of high-profile projects in over 25 years at Dattner Architects. From educational spaces, health clinics and community facilities, to large scale urban design and transportation projects, a multi-disciplinary background in foreign language and dance has influenced her capacity to bring clarity to multi-faceted design and regulatory processes. Her ability to translate complex sets of needs, contexts and requirements, and her innate understanding of how users move through a space, guide her approach to working across project sectors. Drawing upon the Vitruvian ideals of firmness, commodity and delight, she seeks to enable well-being and opportunity within the built environment.
Beth is actively involved in AIA’s New York chapter, having served on the board as secretary, chair of the Housing Committee, and as a member of the Oculus and Nominating committees. She received her Master of Architecture from the University of Colorado, and she holds a Bachelor of Science in French and Dance Education from the University of Wisconsin and Madison.
