Aletheia Ida, PhD, RA

I am an architect, designer, and technologist. I am passionate about the aesthetic environment, human well-being, animals and nature. 

I am the Founding Principal and Owner of Aletheia Ida Design and Architecture, LLC. My goal is to make architectural design services accessible to everyone through unique products, tools, and networks. I believe that lives can be changed through good design and healthy living spaces.

During 25-years in practice as an architect, I have worked on all types of residential design projects - including multi-story high-end condominiums in New York City to single-family custom houses in Arizona. I have conducted housing assessments and strategic plans for state governments, worked with non-profits on group home renovations and remodels, and advised clients on material selections for home designs. I have experience with all phases of the architecture design and construction process. 

In addition, I have ten years teaching experience including my recent position as a tenured associate professor at an R-1 university. At the University of Arizona I was an affiliate faculty of the Institute for Place and Wellbeing, which is associated with Dr. Andrew Weil's Center for Integrative Medicine. I conduct ongoing research for emerging building technology design and material compositions, as well as design for health and well-being. I author papers and books and give presentations internationally on these topics. You can learn more about my research and design work at www.aletheiaida.design.
