Anna Carpenter's work focuses on university campuses. She is particularly engaged by finding innovative solutions that create unique opportunities for students and support the school’s mission and identity. With stakeholder and user expectations continually evolving, Anna works throughout the process to develop an intimate knowledge of a university. She is a firm believer that posing the right questions is the key to achieving design goals, and uses the information she develops through client engagement to compose designs that fit a campus' fabric.  

"Figuring out how to make a building or plan work well technically while still achieving the visual design goals is like putting a puzzle together - it can be challenging at times, but in the end when it all comes together it is all worth it."
