Class of 2016-2017

About Annie

(updtead 6/2017) Annie is an architectural designer and avid urbanist. She is passionate about the intersection between the physical and social aspects of the built environment, and believes that public space and mass transit are catalysts for promoting social equity. For her Luce year, Annie is partnered with  Landprocess Landscape Architecture and Urban Design in  Bangkok, Thailand , where she also co-taught an undergraduate design studio at Chulalongkorn University and participated in a thesis review committee at King Mongkut’s University of Technology. Annie studied architecture, studio art and urban studies at Tulane University on a full merit scholarship, graduating with a Master of Architecture and Bachelor of Architecture in 2011 and receiving an award for her thesis proposing a new system of public transit and public buildings across New Orleans. Annie studied abroad in Copenhagen, Denmark, whose highly functional integrated transit systems showed her the link between well-designed urban infrastructure and quality of life. She spent a year as a Global Health Corps fellow architecture firm MASS Design Group in Rwanda, where she co-managed the construction of a primary school in a Northern Province village and participated in the design of the Munini District Hospital that won the Canadian Architect Award of Excellence in 2015. Annie has worked for architecture firms WRNS Studio in San Francisco and Hart Howerton in New York City; for the Architecture and Design program of the Danish Institute for Study Abroad in Copenhagen; and for the Tulane City Center in New Orleans. She is an avid photographer, and unsurprisingly, enjoys exploring urban environments by bike, foot and public transportation.
