Faith Rose is stepping down as Executive Director of the Public Design Commission at the end of the week, in order to return to O’Neill Rose Architects full time.
"I have been privileged to work with amazing, talented, and dedicated people in both the public and private sectors, and am proud of how our collective work has transformed the city’s public spaces as we work towards greater equity, physical and mental health, and quality of life for everyone who lives in this great city. Together we have proven that design excellence has multiple, long term benefits on the public buildings and spaces we use every day. It has been an honor to be able to support and promote good city design, first at the Department of Design and Construction, and most recently at the Public Design Commission. It will be difficult to leave the public sector and this important work, but at the same time I am thrilled that O’Neill Rose Architects is thriving, and excited to get back to designing after eleven years of public service."
