Amy Korté MArch ’01 has been named President of Boston-based architecture and design firm Arrowstreet. Korté will succeed Jim Batchelor LF ’85, who has served as President since 2004. Prior to her current appointment, Korté helped launch Arrowstreet’s Innovation and Research Studio, known as AIR; a series of research and development incubators ranging from mixed-reality and responsive environments to mobility and mass customization.

“I’m honored to lead our incredible team of architects and designers as our practice rapidly evolves to reflect the technological revolution we’re all experiencing,” said Korté. “It’s an exciting time for architecture and design as traditional methods must be reconsidered and newly emerging technologies incorporated into today’s buildings and public spaces. Life as we’ve known it is being disrupted, and our approach to designing the built environment needs to evolve to reflect the future in ways we can’t even imagine.”
