Loeb Fellow Anna Heringer elected as International Fellow by Royal Institute of British ArchitectsDec 12, 2011
Current Loeb Fellow, Anna Heringer, has been elected as an International Fellow by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA). This lifetime honor is conferred annually by the RIBA to recognize and reward the particular contribution to architecture made by architects from countries other than the United Kingdom.
Anna Heringer is trained as an architect and is from Linz, Austria. She has developed a design practice that focuses on the use of local materials, skills and knowledge to create buildings that are distinct and undeniably from their place. Her school in Bangladesh, built from mud and bamboo was featured in the recent Small Scale, Big Change exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Anna is studying construction techniques and materials during her year as a Loeb Fellow.
