Elizabeth Coit

“ Architecture should be working on improving the environment of people in their homes, in their places of work, and their places of recreation. It should be functional and pleasant, not just in the image of the ego of the architect.” “In architecture, I had absolutely no role model. I’m happy today to be a role model for others that follow. ”

Coit was an architect and specialist on low-income housing who gained noteriety for her publications in the 1940s. Coit operated her own firm in New York City focusing on designing homes and offices from 1930-1942. After, she worked for the US Housing Authority's publication and published numerous pamphlets about public housing. She was elected a fellow of the AIA in 1955.
