Amanda Aman is an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the College of Architecture, Planning and Public Affairs at the University of Texas at Arlington and a project architect with Welch|Hall Architects in Dallas. She has previously worked with SWA as a project designer, Lake|Flato Architects as an intern architect, and Lewis Tsurumaki Lewis as a member of their Rising Currents exhibition team.
Amanda was awarded a research design fellowship while with SWA in which she titled “Wildlife Infrastructure” that focused on wildlife migration courses and habitation patterns as critical components of infrastructure within the framework of development. This research was the subject of a number of her speaking engagements and received a 2015 Texas ASLA Merit Award for Research. The narrative-driven approach she took to the research, rooted in mapping and analysis, ultimately framed how she structured the Global Atlas project in her Fragile Fields studio.
