Voith & MacTavish Architects (VMA), a firm co-founded by Daniela Holt Voith ’76, is celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2009. In February, the Athanaeum of Philadelphia hosted an exhibition of VMA’s work, showcasing the firm’s wide range of projects, including educational facilities, performing-arts venues, religious buildings, private homes, and historic-preservation projects. “The variety of work,” said exhibit organizers, “is united in its response to the project’s context, a commitment to process, sustainability, and stewardship of the environment, and a focus on craftsmanship and beauty that too often is missing from architecture of today.”

Voith, also graduate of the Yale University School of Architecture, now teaches architectural design in Bryn Mawr’s Growth and Structure of Cities Program. She was appointed by Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter to the city’s newly formed Zoning Code Commission, tasked with the ambitious goal of rewriting the code in its entirety, as well as redesigning the approval process.
