LEED GA, Designer
Hannah Ahlblad joined the firm in 2021 and has contributed to the design process of several museum and cultural civic projects, including the Muskegon Museum of Art, IBA, and Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum. These projects draw on her experience on the curatorial side of museums, and versatility working in different cultural contexts. In Annum’s partnership with Studio Enée, she helped develop presentations for the rigorous historic review for a new IBA (Inquilinos Boricuas en Acción) Community Multipurpose Center in Boston’s South End Landmarks District. As part of Annum’s pro-bono preservation team, she has contributed to consulting with communities applying for funding through the Community Preservation Act.
She loves mentoring current students and recent graduates. In 2019 and 2020, she taught foundational studios at the University of San Francisco, and was a regular guest on design juries at Stanford, Otis College of Art and Design, and the University of New Mexico. Currently, Hannah serves as BosNOMA’s University Liaison, and on Annum’s Internship Committee.
Hannah holds a Master of Architecture from the University of Texas at Austin, where she was awarded the E.D. Farmer International Fellowship and the UTSoA Travel Scholarship for field research on cognitive mapping in Mexico City. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Art History and Economics from Wellesley College.
