As Director of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill‘s Technical Department in New York, Nicole Dosso, FAIA, LEED AP BD+C, is an expert in the technical challenges of designing tall buildings on complex urban sites and a mentor to emerging practitioners. She served as Lead Technical Coordinator on SOM’s projects at the World Trade Center site — 7 World Trade Center and One World Trade Center — each of which required technical innovations including the incorporation of advanced life safety systems, which exceeded the then NYC Building Code and provided the basis for developing new standards for high-rise construction throughout New York City.

Her current work in New York City includes the mixed-use 35 Hudson Yards tower, multiple commercial and residential towers comprising the Manhattan West site, the Baccarat Hotel and Residences, the reuse of the landmark Waldorf Astoria, and the redevelopment of the Moynihan Train Hall and Farley Post Office Building.
