Andrea Leers FAIA (2003)
An Architecture of Optimism
Back to WID Award of Excellence recipients.
Two early experiences shaped Andrea’s approach to architecture—her studies at the University of Pennsylvania’s Graduate School of Fine Arts, then led by Louis I. Kahn, after her degree from Wellesley College, and her year in Japan as an NEA-Japan U.S. Friendship Commission Fellow. When she and Jane Weinzapfel met in their internship years, they discovered they shared values and the desire to establish a firm with the goal of creating a bold and refined architecture for the public realm.Full Biography
