Visiting Associate Professor
Beth O’Neill co-founded O’Neill McVoy Architects in 2012 on the belief that architecture can elevate the everyday through shaping contours of space and material, in light, for heightened awareness of time and nature. The Brooklyn-based multi-scale practice initiates projects by asking questions to illuminate the latent potential and special qualities of a project site and aspiration. The studio’s award-winning built work, ongoing construction projects and theoretical proposals include residential, commercial and institutional buildings and spaces realized in collaboration with private and public clients. Prior to starting OM, O’Neill was a project architect completing ambitious residential and commercial projects with WORKac, PM Wheelwright Associates and Rogers Marvel Architects where she was an associate for eight years.
O’Neill has been a visiting critic at Columbia University, Princeton University, Parsons School of Design, and City University of New York and joined the Pratt community teaching Undergraduate Architecture studio in 2014.
