Kate O'Connor is an Assistant Professor at the Marywood University School of Architecture(MUSOA). She received her Bachelor of Architecture from The Catholic University of America in Washington D.C, with a concentration in design and earned her Master of Architecture II at Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana. She is the Director of the design your future high school immersion program and develops and teaches Studio and Statics and Strength of Materials in the second year curriculum in the M.U.S.O.A.
Kate strongly believes that the role of the architect can have an influential impact on society and challenges the profession to become leaders who can solve the very complicated problems of society today. Socially responsible architects must serve as a bridge across borders, to develop architecture that responsibly serves people and their communities without imposing arbitrary restrictions. Ultimately they must create an architecture that understands real human needs such as economic stimulation, social consciousness and provide architecture that balances design with environmental awareness. Her projects engage students to embrace the holistic approach to design, by addressing the environment, economic and social empowerment of design.
