Biography

Cathy Simon's focus on transformative design is evident at all scales. Larger-scale work is best exemplified by San Francisco's Ferry Building, a once-disused relic reborn as a public marketplace and the site of the nation's most highly-regarded farmer's market, as well as a place of vibrant community. Notable smaller projects include numerous independent K-12 projects including the Urban School, a private high school whose identity and relationship to its neighborhood were revolutionized as a result of its new facility.

Cathy's design philosophy and expertise have made her a natural spokesperson for the burgeoning revitalization of post-industrial waterfronts worldwide. She frequently speaks and teaches on issues of urbanization, revitalization and the ways and means of creating these vibrant places that nurture the growth of community.
