Catherine Selby came to practice architecture by way of a diverse background in art history, corporate art, advertising, and sculpture. Her extensive experience designing and managing healthcare projects has informed her ability to find interesting architectural solutions within tight spatial constraints and technical requirements, rendering her a proficient planner—a skill that she applies to a diverse range of projects including supportive housing, educational and institutional spaces. She believes that excellence in design results from many iterations, and she embraces both the challenges and feedback loop generated by projects with limited means and budgets. She is particularly adept at working with non-profit clients to achieve their aspirations without compromising design excellence.
Catherine holds a Master of Architecture from Yale University and a Bachelor of Arts from Columbia University.
