Join us for a structured panel discussion as we navigate the future together, hosted by our IIDA Ohio/Kentucky Chapter.
Announcing our third speaker for this Roundtable Event: Amanda Markovic, AIA
As a Principal at GBBN, Amanda is driven by design’s power to transform experience and empower communities in urban centers, the workplace, and academia. Her passion for libraries has led to award-winning renovations for the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, Knoxville and a reimagining of the Cincinnati Public Library, Deer Park Next Generation Library. Her passion for equitable development has guided her community-centered approach to 5th & Dinwiddie, a mixed-use, Passive House project in Pittsburgh's Uptown neighborhood. A great communicator who facilitates productive discussions among multiple project stakeholders, Amanda's desire to connect everyone to good design has led her to become a leader in the American Institute of Architects Blueprint for Better Communities (B4B) initiative.
