A key member of both our New York City office and national education practice, Frances is passionate about helping academic institutions shape the future of libraries and learning spaces, student life, athletics, student housing, campus master planning and more.
In her role with the AIA New York’s Architecture for Education committee, Frances helps bring the organization’s mission to life by:
- Consistently connecting people key to creating better learning spaces
- Coordinating events where architects, educators, educational administrators and the public can connect to share ideas, collaborate and inspire one another
- Developing outreach programs that help educate the public on architecture’s role in ensuring successful education buildings
- Ensuring maximum connectivity between her team and other AIA New York committees
“Co-leading the AIA New York’s Architecture for Education committee is an exciting opportunity to connect more deeply to discourse and advocacy in education in NYC and beyond,” said Frances. “There are so many new ideas to share, surface and advance when it comes to education design when we work as a collective team. It’s inspiring to work with others so passionate about education spaces and I’m committed to uniting the people, ideas and programs that will make our impact as positive and strong as possible.”
Frances has already helped launch key programs for the committee and upcoming programing can be found via its website.
