When you grow up in a rural area outside of Pittsburgh, a trip to the city is always made more special when you finally experience the “burst” of cityscape after the long drive. It was this awe-inspiring feeling on those trips that moved 12-year-old Bethany to declare she wanted to be an architect. Since she began formally practicing in 2007, she continues to be driven by the significance thoughtful design has on our daily lives and how we experience space. At Perkins Eastman, Bethany specializes in mixed-use, commercial, and workplace projects with an attention to detail at various stages of design from the initial discovery process with a client to the integration of materials during construction. Bethany believes that every piece of the design process plays an important part in creating of spaces that invoke feelings, influence how we live, and become part of us through our memories.
