Biography

Siobhan Steen, AIA, is a Project Architect and Project Manager at Hickok Cole in Washington, DC. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from Catholic University and a Master of Architecture from University of Maryland. Ms. Steen has over a decade of experience at architecture firms in the Washington Metropolitan Area, leading projects from Concept through Construction Administration. With past work experience in small-scale residential and non-profit design, she is currently involved in commercial base building and repositioning projects. Within Hickok Cole, she is engaged in project management, operations, and efficiency.

Siobhan is committed to Social Impact Design and promoting the message that architecture firms can do good and do well. Her interest in social impact design and pro-bono architecture come from her time at the Washington, DC pro-bono architecture firm Inscape Publico. There, she worked on a variety of projects addressing under-served communities locally and abroad. In her role as past-chair of the Hickok Cole Full Circle committee, which engages the office in philanthropy and pro-bono, she gathered consensus for a strategic plan focusing on social impact design, improved tracking of donated time, and increased awareness of the committee’s accomplishments.

Siobhan also is a Guest Lecturer at the University of Maryland teaching Design Thinking, and most recently, a course of her own creation on the timely and provocative topic of Gender, Sex, and Architecture.

Outside of practice and academia, she is an avid reader; everything from long-form journalism and non-fiction to contemporary literature. Her instagram feed is a creative outlet and visual diary, exploring the possibilities for architectural dialogue via social media. Follow her at http://instagram.com/siobhansteen
