Merge Architects works at a variety of scales, and emphasizes both digital fabrication and hand-making, material experimentation, and urban engagement.  They use economy of means as an opportunity for invention and collaboration with artists, craftsmen and engineers.

 The firm’s work has been published widely in the US and abroad, has received numerous AIA awards, and has been recognized in national and international competitions.  Merge Architects was also named one of the “15 firms to watch” by Residential Architect magazine, won the 2014 Vanguard Award from Architectural Record (in recognition as one of the top ten emerging firms in the world), and in 2015 received the presitgious Emerging Voices Award from the Architectural League of New York. Beth also received a Young Architects Award from the AIA in 2015.

 Beth graduated from Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design, where she is currently an Assistant Professor of Practice.  She has also taught design studios at MIT, Northeastern, the Boston Architectural College.
