Biography

AnnaLisa teaches architectural structures courses, research studios, advanced structures and computing seminars, and design-build courses. She emphasizes the ability to integrate the highly technical, the beautiful, and the environmental simultaneously and seamlessly into a built form. She believes it is the ability to work with all these media fluently that creates projects of critical relevance.

She directs the research into future transportation and its catalytic relationship to urban form in her in interdisciplinary research group, Transportation Infrastructure and Public Space, and also researches the use of structural behaviour algorithms in the generation of architectural form. She maintains a blog on her research and teaching.

AnnaLisa is a practicing engineer and has a background in bridge design.
