Her architecture has focused on the planning and design of educational, research and technology, and corporate facilities. She has built work in Columbus OH, Lorain OH, Solon OH, Chapel Hill NC, Washington DC, the United Arab Emirates, Champaign IL, and Chelsea MA. Her work has garnered numerous design awards; she has been published; and she has spoken at architectural conferences. In 2016, she was elevated to Fellow in the American Institute of Architects.
As a painter, Ruth cities and objects which are the result of human activity and design.
