Anna Koosmann has recently accepted an offer to become the School of Architecture's newest assistant professor.

Anna has over ten years of professional experience engaging communities, both domestically and internationally. She has spearheaded projects for diverse populations, including a university design-build program in the Philippines. She co-founded a Seattle-based design-build group and delivered affordable housing with the Yakama Nation in Washington State. In all these projects, she advocated for a community and created place-based, innovative structures with real impact. Her leadership establishing the first design-build program in the Philippines gained national recognition, including the “Most Eco-Friendly School in the Philippines,” from the United Nations in 2015, and ultimately led to her Fulbright.

Anna received a Bachelor of Science in Architecture, cum laude, with a minor in Art History from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 2002 and a Master of Architecture from the University of Washington in 2007. She’s been registered and NCARB-certified since 2013.

Anna will return to the SoA in May as a final review juror for the Capstone and Design/Build studios. She will begin her teaching duties this summer with the M.Arch Immersion Studios and start her tenure-track next fall.
