Design Futures Council Emerging Leader 2014

The Design Futures Council has named Katherine as one of seven professionals its Emerging Leaders for 2014. Design Futures Council is an interdisciplinary network of design, product, and construction leaders exploring global trends, challenges, and opportunities to advance innovation and shape the future of the industry and environment.

One of the Design Futures Council’s missions is to identify and recognize future leaders who are having—and will increasingly have—an impact on design practices, design professions, and the community. The Emerging Leaders fellowship program, now in its sixth year, addresses this goal by selecting individuals who represent the future of design practice in terms of its broadening scope, service to society, sustainable design, and technological innovation. As part of the annual Leadership Summit, Katherine spoke on the role of architecture and community development.

The award is sponsored by DuPont Building Innovations.
