Caroline is passionate about careful craft and hands on experience. In 2021, Caroline was a design-build resident for MOA's (Mobile Office Architects) Small Project Studio on Guemes Island, WA, where they got a first taste of the Pacific Northwest (and knew they would be back!)

Currently, Caroline leads research at Matter Design, collaborating with industry partners to speculate: how can architects leverage embodied intelligence to design for radical longevity?
