Catherine Joseph is an architect at FXCollaborative Architects in New York City. She earned her Master of Architecture from Cornell University and holds a Bachelor of Science in Structural Engineering from Duke University. Her desire for an integrated design process, both in concept and in practice, prompted her to combine engineering and architecture, and her current interests focus on pushing beyond the status quo in all aspects of design. This includes thinking beyond the current practice of structural design to reconsider how structural failure is understood within the built environment. Further, Joseph is focused on rethinking how space is designed to accommodate all users, a concept currently manifested in a design study of gendered bathrooms.
