Cassandra Osterman


Cassandra returns to the United States after completing her MA Architecture and Historic Urban Environments at The Bartlett School of University College London. Before moving to the United Kingdom for the 12-month intensive program – a hybrid of architectural/urban design, and historical research methodologies –  Cassandra first came to the Pittsburgh area in 2009; since that time, she earned her Bachelor of Architecture degree at Carnegie Mellon University, worked as a Project Designer with Springboard Design, interned with Module LLC, and mentored high school students through CMOA’s Architecture Design Apprenticeship. Cassandra’s goal is to leverage a critical analysis of historic contexts to better inform new architectural design, particularly in the area of adaptive reuse. Building upon her international experience, Cassandra hopes to champion the thoughtful, equitable, and future-oriented growth of Pittsburgh’s unique built environment.
