Full Biography

Tamara Roy AIA
Principal and Tenure-track Faculty, Stantec Architecture Boston and Massachusetts College of Art and Design
Women in Design Award of Excellence, 2012 winner

Being a woman in a male-dominated profession has meant that Tamara has had to fight for her values, yet she continues to forge a path of optimism:

  • artistic, expressive design
  • collaboration with clients, users, community groups, and city agencies
  • true teamwork in the office
  • family-first work policies
  • sustainability and affordability
  • mentorship and advocacy for other women and minorities
  • empowerment of women and minority partners and consultants
  • collegiality and respect for all perspectives.

She hopes that her impact will be to foster a more diverse future for architectural design, process, and practice.
