Amanda Morgan is a design historian and an emerging architectural designer with a focus on materiality and craft at a range of scales. After earning an MA in the History of Decorative Arts, Design, and Culture from the Bard Graduate Center, Amanda held both curatorial and public service positions at institutions including the Brooklyn Museum, the Museum of Florida History, and Bonham's & Butterfield's. A move to the Bay Area and a Program Management position at a green building nonprofit led to a return to graduate school, and in 2012 Amanda graduated with an M.Arch. from the University of Oregon. At the UO, she served as a Graduate Research Fellow with the Sustainable Cities Initiative and was awarded the Betty Peting Traveling Fellowship, which took her to Sweden and Denmark in fall 2012 to research social housing developed during the Million Program in the 1960s-70s. Amanda serves on the steering committee for the Architecture Foundation of Oregon's Architects in Schools program and is also an annual participant. In addition to teaching at PSU, Amanda is on the adjunct faculty at Pacific Northwest College of Art and works at Carleton Hart Architecture, where she focuses on affordable housing design.
