STELLA BETTS | TONIGHT! WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 30, 2013
Stella Betts, together with David Leven, created Leven Betts Studio in New York City in 1997. The practice has focused on projects relating to issues of the city with works ranging from houses and housing to the CM2.0 Children’s Museums and the Cornell University Sibley Hall. The studio has received numerous awards, including The Architectural League of NY’s Emerging Voices Award 2009 and four AIA NYC Awards; and has lectured and exhibited work internationally. Their monograph Leven Betts: Pattern Recognition (Princeton Architectural Press, 2008) highlights the firm’s belief that the design of meaningful spaces which bring people into an active relationship with architecture requires finding and inscribing in space the physical marks and temporal patterns of our daily lives. Betts is the coordinator of the graduate thesis program at Parsons and an adjunct faculty member of the Cooper Union Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture. She received a Master of architecture degree from Harvard University in 1994.
