AIA, LEED AP | Partner
Arthi has led some of our largest and most complex projects. Her work is often mission-driven, using design to advance the objectives of institutions in ways that reflect their core values and amplify their impact. Skillful, adroit, smart, for Arthi, it comes down to her faith in people:
Humans are a source of infinite potential. An architecture grounded in empathy can further the ambitions of its users to realize that potential. Buildings and spaces can inspire, bring comfort and joy. Architecture is an art when it strikes a chord. And it should.
Arthi has managed our projects for Cummins and for The Women’s Building, and is leading our project for Princeton University. She has designed all our projects for foundations, including for International Planned Parenthood Federation and the Wallace Foundation.
Arthi serves on the board of the Queens Museum, an institution dedicated to presenting the highest quality visual arts and educational programming for people in the New York metropolitan area, and particularly for the residents of Queens, a uniquely diverse, ethnic, cultural, and international community.
Having practiced architecture since 2003, Arthi joined Deborah Berke Partners in 2010 and became a partner in 2019. She received her B.S. in Architectural Studies from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, and an M.Arch. from the University of Pennsylvania.
