A founding principal of MKM, Dodd Kattman has helped lead the company’s evolution into a nationally respected design firm. As the director of long-term care work, he offers more than 25 years of senior living experience, dedicating his time to design, research, publish, and present topics that elevate the expectations of supportive environments for older adults. Being an established thought 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). Through his leadership, the DFA conducted a national juried design awards and post-occupancy evaluation program that promotes innovative design in senior care environments. He also serves 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 of Outstanding Achievement” in recognition of his work serving older adults.
