Anna Beer \ Architect
Anna studied architecture at Oxford Brookes University, and University of Westminster where she graduated with Distinction. Her major design project ‘Tuberetum’ explored a way in which the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew could implement community garden facilities to grow potatoes in the wake of a food shortage. The structural logic of these interventions was determined by a practical investigation into the way single surface material can be joined along curved ages in order to create a credible structural system. Her written thesis ‘Experiences of Cloud at Bagsvaerd Church’ was chosen by the University to be displayed within the school and featured in the catalogue.
Whilst studying at Oxford Brookes, Anna’s design for a Meteorological Research Laboratories & Water Gardens in Paris won the Berman Guedes Stretton Award for Creative Originality in Design, which has been subsequently published.
Prior to joining Design Engine, Anna has worked for practices in Oxford and Winchester, gathering experience working on a range of projects at different stages, from private schools to bespoke house design to conservation work.
Since joining Design Engine, Anna has worked on projects for Winchester College and Prince’s Mead School, assisting with design and production, including an extensive scale model for Prince’s Mead School.
