Throughout her career, Joan Krevlin has approached architecture as a reciprocal expression of the communities it serves. Joan’s collegial and almost journalistic process results in a rich understanding of her clients, which is reflected in her mission-infused designs.
Guided by the philosophy that successful buildings both support an organization’s identity today and adapt for the environmental and societal needs of tomorrow, Joan has worked with a diverse cross section of New York’s civic institutions, from the New York Hall of Science to the Department of Parks & Recreation. Her widely lauded projects include the Queens Botanical Garden Visitor and Administration Center, New York’s first publicly funded LEED Platinum project and winner of an AIA COTE Top Ten Award, and the FDNY’s educational Fire Zone center, winner of an AIA NY Award for Excellence in Interior Design.
Joan is closely involved with many of NYC’s cultural and service institutions, and is currently vice chairwoman of the Board of Trustees for the Bronx Museum of Art. She has served on the AIA New York Chapter’s Committee on the Environment and the Mayor’s Green Code Task Force. She also served as an adjunct studio professor in the Spitzer School of Architecture at City College of New York. Joan holds BA and MArch degrees from Washington University in St. Louis, of which she is a Distinguished Alumnus. In 2010, the American Institute of Architects honored Joan by welcoming her to the esteemed College of Fellows.
