Betsy’s passion for architecture was forged as an undergraduate student at the University of Connecticut in the study of the great cathedrals. She appreciated the monumental human achievement embodied in those structures as builders in medieval times overcame the constraints of traditional building techniques into a new architecture, and the correlation of that evolution to the skyscraper in modern times. Further studies led her to a deep respect of the work of modernist, Louis Kahn, leading her to complete her graduate studies at the University of Pennsylvania. She cites one of Louis Kahn’s buildings, the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth Texas , for its influence on her philosophy of design specifically for its innovative forms and use of natural light.
Early in her career, Betsy worked with a firm specializing in research laboratory design for universities and has continued to manage ever larger and more complex projects. She has been described by our client representatives as an extraordinarily diligent project manager.
