The New York-based architect spoke to Dezeen's founder and editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs about her work.
Originally from Germany, Selldorf founded her practice Selldorf Architects in New York in 1988 and has completed projects including museums, educational facilities and interiors.
The practice is behind a major renovation and expansion of the Frick Collection in New York City, which received approval in 2018.
In 2019, it completed a campus for a primary school in Zambia which was funded by a charity that aims to build schools and orphanages in rural African communities.
Selldorf is a fellow of the American Institute of Architects and serves on the Board of the Architectural League of New York. She has taught at the Harvard Graduate School of Design and received the AIA New York Medal of Honor in 2016.
