Dattner Architects Promotes New Partner
Dattner Architects is pleased to announce that Gia Mainiero AIA, LEED AP BD+C, Assoc. DBIA has been elevated to Principal in recognition of her contributions to the firm and her evolving role in the practice.
The firm’s foundation is civic architecture. Our designs for transit, schools, libraries, housing, healthcare, parks and recreation facilities, and community centers enrich the urban fabric with distinctive, innovative, and inspiring buildings—positively impacting countless residents.
A born-and-raised New Yorker, Gia came to Dattner Architects in 2006, captivated by the intricate and interrelated systems that make urban life possible. Her determination to garner a big picture understanding of how things work has led her to manage many of the firm’s infrastructure and transportation projects. Passionate about public architecture, Gia was a core team member for the Manhattan Districts 1/2/5 Garage and Spring Street Salt Shed, and is committed to creating inspiring, sustainable infrastructure for future generations. Her recent clients include NYC Department of Design & Construction, NYC Department of Sanitation, the General Services Administration, and MTA Triborough Bridge & Tunnel Authority.
“Gia Mainiero’s commitment to the design of essential infrastructure, improving the built environment throughout New York City, and ability to build consensus among project stakeholders make her Dattner Architects’ newest valued partner.” — expressed principal Paul Bauer AIA.
In her new role as Principal, Gia will lead the design and management of infrastructure, transportation, and design-build projects at Dattner Architects and continue her role as a mentor within the office.
“I am grateful and honored to join the other principals in leading our community of driven professionals at Dattner Architects. A strong conviction for the value of essential architecture is what drew me to Dattner 15 years ago, and I am thrilled to continue and evolve the firm’s positive impact in sustaining urban life.” — Gia Mainiero AIA, LEED AP BD+C, Assoc.
