by Index Magazine, September 1997:
Whether designing store interiors for Calvin Klein, building a beach house in the Caribbean or renovating a derelict community center that will become Yale University's new School of Art, Deborah Berke's work is influenced by her sensitivity to the everyday environment and characterized by her real affection for ordinary materials. More likely to rhapsodize over a sheet of galvanized steel than a wall of marble, she also understands that buildings not only engage the people who use them, but everyone who passes them in the street.
Deborah is a populist with a highly refined sense of what is and what can be elegant, and a minimalist who can't help but lavish attention on detail. Of course, these contradictions are what make her one of the most interesting architects at work today.
