Diana Studer, Architect AIBC, MRAIC, LEED AP
Diana is a hands-on architect passionate about leading projects through public engagement and complex challenges. With over 17 years of experience in K-12 schools, transitional housing and other public works, Diana deeply understands how to harness unique perspectives and include all voices in the design process.
Building on her experience engaging children in design charrettes, Diana's process is deeply rooted in a commitment to listen first and see through others' eyes. These charrettes help provide our clients with a richer outlook on project development and their project's impact on the community. Based on her studies into how the built environment affects the psychological development of children, Diana strives to provide opportunities for independent movement, regardless of project scale, allowing users to move through spaces and make their own experiences. Her boots-on-the-ground experience is extensive, with complex seismic upgrades and renovations completed, working collaboratively with engineering and contracting partners.
