AIA, LEED AP, Principal
A founding principal of MKM, Dodd Kattman has helped lead the firm’s evolution into a nationally respected design firm. Overseeing MKM's long-term care work, Dodd offers more than 30 years of senior living experience, dedicating his time to design, research, and publish topics that elevate the expectations of supportive environments for older adults. Dodd has given numerous conference presentations on long-term care and advocates for elderly populations, encouraging care providers and government agencies to adopt strategies that encourage seniors to live in connected, intergenerational communities.
Being a recognized leader within the long-term care industry, Dodd recently chaired the Design for Aging (DFA) Review Task Force, a biennial collaboration between LeadingAge and the American Institute of Architects (AIA). With his guidance, the DFA conducted a national juried design awards and post-occupancy evaluation program that promotes innovative design in senior care environments. He also served as Co-Chair of the AIA Design for Aging Knowledge Community advisory group.
Recently, Ball State University's College of Architecture and Planning Alumni Society recognized him with the Alumni Award for Outstanding Achievement. In 2019, he was awarded the Juliet Peddle Award by AIA Indiana, in recognition of his leadership in architecture, particularly in environments for aging.
