AIA, LEED AP®
Kate Mann is a Principal in the New York office with more than 27 years of experience designing award-winning institutional, educational, and civic projects internationally. With a passion for hands-on collaboration, she facilitates interactive design processes that engage team members, stakeholders, and user groups alike, resulting in transformative architecture that is a singular reflection of its context. Kate has made a lifelong practice of sketching and model making, tools she uses to foster an iterative design process. She strives for inclusivity at each phase of her projects, whether pinning collective ideas onto a physical wall or, with the help of her iPad, a virtual wall. She finds inspiration in each diverse user group and unique set of project parameters, from academic communities at Vassar College and Stanford Law School to diplomatic communities in Nigeria, Thailand, Mexico, Turkey, and the Bahamas. Kate holds a Master of Architecture from Princeton University and a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from The Georgia Institute of Technology.
