Beth Barrett, AIA, LEED AP BD+C


Beth Barrett’s experience in theater and museum renovation lends itself to a broad variety of complex institutional projects. Drawing inspiration from sources ranging from Rome’s Pantheon to the work of Renzo Piano, she likens architecture to collage: “We take all the pieces that we receive — whether from the client, the existing site, available resources and materials, or elsewhere — and arrange these pieces into a meaningful whole.”

At QEA, Beth has gained design experience in new construction and major renovation projects that are sensitive both to their context and client needs. Of her many projects, she regards The Franklin Court Museum as a prime example of the impact that engaging and working with multiple stakeholders can have in developing stronger designs and better solutions.

I try to avoid using the word ‘passé.’ Good architecture is good architecture, no matter what the style.
