Ann Marshall

Lecturer, Summer Design Academy Director

Ann Marshall, AIA, LEED AP, was educated at Auburn University (B.A. Interior Design) and the Harvard Graduate School of Design (M. Arch I). Professor Marshall, principal of her own architectural firm and co-founder of the exhibition design firm Design Division Inc., is a registered architect in Massachusetts with extensive experience in both architecture and exhibition design.
