Paul Bauer AIA is a Principal at Dattner Architects, a 115-person firm focused on architecture for our communal, civic life. As the design leader for many of the firm’s large infrastructure projects, Paul takes an iterative and research-based approach to architecture. He views the highly specific set of requirements that guide infrastructure design as an opportunity for discovery rather than a limit for potential, and he strives to develop clear conceptual frameworks through a collaborative process. He was the Principal-in-Charge of Manhattan Districts 1/2/5 Garage & Spring Street Salt Shed, an award-winning, LEED Gold project that graced the cover of Architectural Record. He is leading the PATH Harrison Station, a new sustainable, mass-transit facility in New Jersey and directed the high performance modernization of the Nazario Courthouse/Degetau Federal Office Building in San Juan for the GSA. Paul’s commitment to enhancing the built environment is expressed through his professional affiliations, including the AIA New York Chapter’s Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. Paul has studied at the Ecole National Superior Des Beaux Arts in Paris, and holds both a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Architecture from Georgia Institute of Technology.
