Kathryn Slattery, AIA, LEED AP


At QEA, Kathryn Slattery has gained a breadth of experience of a wide variety of building types, including historic structures, as well as design solutions for museums, visitor attractions and other institutional projects.

Katie has deep appreciation for a diverse pantheon of buildings and people — from Diocletian’s Palace in Croatia to Monticello, and from Mies Van der Rohe and Frank Lloyd Wright to lesser-known architects such as Samuel Mockbee and James Cutler. She’s especially proud of her role as project architect in the renovation of an animal holding building at the Smithsonian’s National Zoological Park into a state-of-the-art genetics laboratory.

What I find most rewarding about my job is working with others to solve a problem — especially one we’ve been told can’t be solved.
