Louise Braverman is a New York City-based architect known for a design philosophy that aims to combine aesthetic design and social conscience. She is a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects (FAIA).[1][2]

Educated at the Yale School of Architecture,[3] Braverman founded her own firm, Louise Braverman Architect, in 1991. Her firm has designed a number of notable buildings around the world including the Village Health Works Staff Housing and Centro de Artes Nadir Afonso. Braverman lectures frequently, discussing her work at such venues as Columbia GSAPP,[4] The Plan Magazine Perspective USA,[5] and at the Architectural League NY as an Emerging Voice.[6] In 2017, she gave a keynote address at the AIA Iowa Convention.[7] Recently she was invited to present the work of her firm at the 2016,[8] 2014,[9] and 2012[10] Venice Biennale of Architecture, as well as at the Time Space Existence exhibit during the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale.[11] She expressed how Venice is a source of her creative inspiration in her essay in Dream of Venice Architecture.[12]

Notable Works[edit]

Some of Braverman's notable works include award-winning[13][14] sustainable housing center for health workers in a rural village in Burundi, Africa[15] and the Centro de Artes Nadir Afonso Art Museum in Boticas, Portugal dedicated to the work of abstract artist Nadir Afonso.[16][17][18] Centro de Artes Nadir Afonso is one of 1000 buildings in the world that has been recognized as a significant contemporary architectural destination.[19]

Other projects that have gained attention from the media include CV Starr Hand Surgery Center in St. Luke's Roosevelt Hospital in New York City,[20] Poets House,[21] Derfner Judaica Museum,[22] and Chelsea Court affordable housing.[23] Her firm was selected by the Walton Family Foundation in 2015 to be included in the inaugural Northwest Design Excellence Program, a pool of 36 designers who will contribute to the future of the urban landscape in Northwest Arkansas.[24]
