Robin Glosemeyer Petrone, Principal
Art and science converged for Robin during a Requiem in a cathedral in Dortmund while studying abroad – Verdi laced with limestone and stained glass can have that effect – and she returned to the University of Kansas to add an acoustics emphasis to her Architectural Engineering degree. She joined Jaffe Holden in 2000 and became Director of West Coast Operations in 2003, managing projects and the office until her departure in 2007 to start a family. She reentered the profession at Threshold in a role involving both consulting and business development.
Robin’s history in the Acoustical Society of America includes co-chairing student design competitions, co-organizing the 2003 Concert Hall Research Group Summer Institute, and co-authoring Classroom Acoustics: A Reference for Creating Learning Environments with Desirable Listening Conditions. Robin has been an invited lecturer on the topics of music and architecture for the LA Philharmonic’s Music for Elementary Educators series and at SCI-Arc as part of the Stereolabs Seminar which focused on the exploration of architecture and sound.
