About Devon Telberg

Devon joined the CTBUH New York in 2015 as Communications Coordinator and has since played an integral part in the operations of the New York chapter and promoting this work to its members and beyond.

Following her bachelor’s degree at SUNY University at Buffalo, Devon obtained her Masters in the UK, reading Advanced Architectural Design at Oxford Brookes University. Her focus of study centered around parametric space, the innovative application of both tensile and pneumonic structures, and satiricism as an architectural solution.

Prior to her degree, Devon honed her design skills at firms focusing on residential and community buildings. Her work has taken her across the globe, even spending time in Kuala Lumpur with a small practice. This global experience has been invaluable in inspiring new design concepts and understanding how tall structures exist within varying cultures. Since joining, Devon has worked at a number of high-end practices including KPF and currently at Adamson Associates.

Devon brings to the chapter an extremely diverse background, with experience designing a broad scope of projects, from luxury private residences to public bridges. Her skill set also spans across design styles, from contemporary minimalist projects in Lebanon, to gothic skyscrapers at 55 Liberty Street, NY. Her true passion, however, has always remained in large-scale architectural projects that benefit communities.
