Emerging Professional Award


Katie Scanlon


Nominated by: Jeffrey Kamm, AIA

Katie Scanlon’s start in architecture began when her father decided to rehab and reconstruct a historic home. When he asked her to draw up the plans for the family project, she was inspired to pursue a career in architecture. After graduating from Three Rivers Community College, she began working for Barun Basu, where she learned more about design and running an architectural practice.

Katie went on to work at Point One Architects as Architectural Designer which further exposed her to the practice of architecture as a whole – design, documents, client contact, marketing, and office administration.

In 2017, Katie went on to attain her Master’s Degree in Architecture at University of Hartford. During this time, she worked with Wadsworth Kamm Architects and on the board of New London Landmarks, where she learned the business of historic rehabilitation.

Katie currently works for Svigals + Partners, where she continues to expand her knowledge about the architectural profession and urban planning. She is the Ledyard Regional Planning Representative on the Ledyard Planning and Zoning Board, and she teaches at Three Rivers Community College.

Katie is a modern architect who is evolving with technology, passionate about doing good work, dedicated to serving her communities and always learning.
