Ingrid Schroder is an architect educated at Cambridge University and the LSE.
Ingrid is a first year studio tutor at the AA, and at the University of Cambridge where she is a Sir Isaac Newton Design Fellow and also runs a third year studio unit. She also teaches a course on American Urbanism at Cambridge.
Her research focuses on the relationship between monumental urban spaces and their lived experience. She is currently working on a thesis that explores how Washington DC was conceived as a physical manifestation of a political ideal. Her design research examines how tall buildings can form a new urban infrastructure and be adapted for reuse despite their scale and hermetic nature.
Ingrid has also worked in practice since 2000, running a series of award winning projects with 5th Studio architects.
