Associate Professor

Ann Marie Borys is an architect and scholar who studies practice and the built environment as material culture. Her research explores the relationship of construction, intention, and meaning. She examines the processes and influences that contribute to design and their relationship to the physical and experiential qualities of architecture. She published the first English-language book on the 16th century northern Italian architect Vincenzo Scamozzi in 2014, and is currently at work on a study of American Unitarian churches. She has practiced architecture full time in Boston, Philadelphia, and Cincinnati, and is licensed in several states; she has served on the Conservation Board of the City of Cincinnati and the Board of the Unity Temple Restoration Foundation. She serves as the Department of Architecture’s Architect Licensing Adviser, encouraging the next generation of architects to engage in the rapidly changing profession and be among its leaders.
