The IPA Announces New Executive Director

The Board of the Institute for Public Architecture is delighted to announce that Nadine Maleh has been chosen to lead the IPA as its new Executive Director. Nadine takes the reins at a time of growth for the organization. The IPA promotes architecture and design in the creation of more equitable communities.

Nadine joins the Institute after four years as Director of the Inspiring Places team at Community Solutions. There, she developed design and development protocols for community-led supportive housing and community hub developments nationally. Prior to that, Nadine worked for nine years at Common Ground, a leading developer of affordable and permanent supportive housing for homeless New Yorkers, where she played a key role in the design and development of more than 1,000 units of housing across the City.

We welcome Nadine to her new leadership position at the IPA and look forward to a robust expansion of the vital and compelling programs we provide to bridge the gap between policy makers and the design community. As we strive to broaden the conversation on architecture for the public and in the public realm, the IPA is creating a path to a more equitable designed environment.
