Michele Rudolph received her Bachelor Of Architecture and Master of Architecture at Tulane University where she was awarded the Goldstein Prize.  She has been practicing architecture for over thirty-five years, and has headed her own firm since 1990.  Her interest in Art History and Studio Art has led her to study over the years at the San Francisco Center for Architecture and Urban Studies, the Arts Students League, and Silvermine Guild Arts Center.  Michele serves her town as Chairperson of the Pound Ridge Planning Board.  She is registered in NY and CT.

Michele’s early career was dedicated to redesigning Manhattan’s skyline in the New York offices of luminary architects Helmut Jahn, Eli Attia, and Der Scutt.  She was a member of a small studio of architects responsible for transforming New York City in the 1980’s.  In 1990 Michele started her own award winning practice, and has consulted for Riverside Design + Build, LLC since it was founded.
