Evan Delli PaoliAIA, CDT, LEED AP BD+C

Principal, New York

Evan has focused his professional career on the spatial relationships between art and architecture and on buildings’ capacity to create memorable user experiences. His fascination with the interrelatedness of the arts started at a young age growing up surrounded by culture and was solidified by his musical training and his architectural studies at Syracuse University.

Evan’s 19 years as a trumpeter with the Central Jersey Wind Ensemble gives him a unique perspective on how architecture can both enhance an audience’s experience and support the performers on stage. His musical experience has been central to his work in the design, documentation, and construction oversight of major performing arts facilities including both restored and new venues. Currently serving as a Vice-Commissioner for the USITT Architecture Commission, Evan has been an invited speaker at the American Society of Acousticians (ASA), the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival (KCACTF), and the United States Institute for Theatre Technology (USITT). He is a licensed architect in the state of New York.
