Dawn R. Schuette, FAIA, LEED AP, Partner

Dawn’s interest in music and training in architecture led her to the acoustic consulting field, where she has been working for more than 25 years assisting end users and design professionals to enhance the aural experience in performance and education facilities, worship spaces, cultural buildings, and other places of public assembly. Dawn’s interest and education in City and Regional Planning gives her the perspective to think beyond traditional acoustic boundaries to improve awareness of urban noise and the needs of the hearing impaired in the built environment.

Dawn is a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects and past President of the Board of AIA Chicago. She also serves on the Alumni Board for her alma mater, Illinois Institute of Technology, currently as Chair of the Alumni Awards Committee.

Personal interests include choral singing, gardening, and working to restore prairie and wetlands southwest of Chicago.
