Carly Gertler received her Master of Architecture with Distinction from Harvard University's Graduate School of Design and her B.S. in Architecture with a minor in Art & Design from University of Michigan's Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning. There she won the Wallenberg Thesis Prize; her winning project, "Between the West and the Western", can be seen in the annual Taubman College journal of architecture Dimensions 27.

Carly has worked for a range of architecture firms, from Herzog & de Meuron to Zago Architecture and MASS Design Group.  Her most recent work has been in collaboration with close friend and colleague Eliana Dotan in the form of Dotan Gertler Studio.  A New York City-based architectural design office, Dotan Gertler Studio produces structures, interiors, installations, objects, and systems. Their collaboration values tactile experiences and a connection to place with a process guided by making.

The studio’s current work includes a collaboration with artist Tania Bruguera for an itinerant theater structure appearing at the Biennial of Contemporary Arts (Porto, PT), Kunsten Festival des Arts (Brussels, BE), Festival d’Automne à Paris (Paris, FR), and International Summer Festival Hamburg (Hamburg, DE) in 2017.
