Andrea Steele Architecture will present its past and future projects, which range from a NASA research center in Cleveland, Ohio to a state-of-the-art branch of the New York Public Library in Midtown Manhattan, to illuminate how architecture can create and enhance public space. 

During this hands-on modeling exercise, you will analyze urban conditions and construct an architectural intervention. Learn how architects can make a positive impact not only for a client, but also for the surrounding neighborhood, city, and beyond. Enhance your critical thinking about architecture, and imagine how architects might create new connections that extend beyond a site or building.


Andrea Steele Architecture (ASA) is a New York-based architecture practice focused on institutional, cultural, and community-oriented projects. The studio, previously TEN Arquitectos’ New York office, was established in 2003 and has produced more than 40 built works throughout the United States. With a growing studio made up of architects, interior designers, planners, strategists, and educators from all over the globe, ASA approaches architecture as a way of creating connections and alignments: between a client’s culture and the public sphere; between the local and the universal; between thought and action.
