Remembering Judy Edelman

Today marks the anniversary of the passing of one our founders, Judith Edelman.

Her legacy of designing housing, health clinics, and other community-focused buildings for New York City’s most vulnerable populations still guides the firm today. She remains a pioneer and role model to women architects and to the industry as a whole.

 

To learn more about her, visit the links below.

  • She describes her motivation and experience being an architect in an interview on our own blog from 2012.
  • As one of the first women in a male-dominated field, she earned the moniker “Dragon Lady”.
  • For a more extensive biography, see her obituary in The New York Times.
  • In 1975, she appeared on Sesame Street to show children what an architect is and does.
