Andrea Steele, Founder + Principal - Andrea Steele Architecture
"Andrea Steele is the Founding Principal of Andrea Steele Architecture (ASA), a New York-based practice that believes the scale of architecture is not measured by its physical size, but by its positive impact on people, resources, and sense of place. With over two decades of experience practicing architecture, Andrea has led a wide range of complex urban design projects throughout the United States. Steele served as partner and principal of TEN Arquitectos' New York office for more than eight years before renaming the studio in 2019. As Andrea Steele Architecture, the studio continues the design rigor and excellence, with a heightened focus on institutional, cultural, and community-oriented projects. ASA's current projects include the recently completed innovation hub for NASA in Cleveland, Ohio; a community center for Make the Road New York in Queens; a cultural heart for downtown Brooklyn comprised of new cinemas and film archive for the Brooklyn Academy of Music; a production studio for the Brooklyn Public Library; galleries for the Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts; and performance venues for 651 Arts. The studio has just begun design on a new Cultural and Innovation Hub in Harlem, NY. "
