FAIA, Partner

Seattle Studio

Ruth Baleiko’s work is defined by her ability to take a client’s vision and translate it to iconic form and expression. Since joining Miller Hull in 1999, Ruth has devoted her expertise to spaces for teaching, learning and discovery that weave together functional and inspirational aspects of design. As a Design Partner in the office, Ruth is experienced with the facilitation techniques needed to meld the technical requirements of public facilities with a broad range of stakeholder desires. Through her unique approach defined by active listening, iconic expression and typological transformation, she creates spaces that bring people together to share intellectual and cultural capital in new, unexpected ways.

Ruth earned her master’s degree in architecture from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. She currently co-chairs AIA Seattle’s Committee for Architecture of Educations, serves as board president of ARCADE Magazine and is a member of the AIA Seattle Fellows and Honors Committee. As a leader within the community, she also speaks regularly at regional and national conferences to share expertise in design of academic spaces.
