Carrie Ann Foster is an architectural designer with projects in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York. She presented her Master's thesis at the Southern California Institute of Architecture in September 2011. After receiving her Bachelor of Arts in Architecture from UC Berkeley in 2004, she worked for four years in the profession, designing schools, churches, and mixed-use residential projects, developing master plans, collaborating with local artists, and acquiring new projects and commissions.
