Andrea Cernusak

Adjunct Professor

Part-Time Faculty


Andrea studies the built environment at the intersection of the industrial and urban, where borders and edges are blurred. She is most interested in what is left behind when the industrial use has waned or disappeared and how this affects the fabric of our cities, towns, and rural landscapes. Through photography, both abstract and representational, she aims to capture these intersections and document their relevance.

In addition to teaching architecture, she is a registered architect and has worked professionally up and down the West Coast. She currently works in the San Francisco Bay Area with her own practice as well as with local notable firms.
