With a diverse skillset in art, design and business, Andrea Springer brings a holistic view of architecture to her role as Project Designer and Project Coordinator with RNL. She is driven by her passion to design spaces and objects that shape people’s environment and experiences in a new way.
A true maker at heart, Andrea brings a passion for innovative and creative designs to each of her projects. Since joining RNL in 2013, her most notable design and planning projects include the Burj 2020 Competition (American Architecture Award 2017 recipient), State of Colorado Capitol Complex Master Plan, Colorado Department of Human Services Master Plan, and the Northgate Transit Center in El Paso, Texas.
Andrea received a Bachelor of Arts in Architecture from Miami University, a Master of Fine Arts in Furniture Design from Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), and a Master of Science in Architecture: Digital Technologies from the University of Michigan. She ran a studio art and design business in Detroit (where she was named as one of the ten signs for hope in Detroit by Dale Dougherty of Make Magazine in 2013) before moving to Denver.
Believing in the power of helping students forge their creative journeys, Andrea teaches at the University of Colorado Denver and previously taught at RISD and the College for Creative Studies in Detroit.
Proud to call Colorado home, Andrea stays active in the community through involvement with AIA Denver, as a jury member for the AIA Colorado Young Architects Awards 2014, University of Michigan Alumni Group – Denver, Rhode Island School of Design Alumni Group – Denver, the Denver Architectural Foundation CAL Teaching Project, and Rocky Mountain NEWH Student Mentoring.
