Working to join people, ideas and
resources to help meet the complex challenges of the future
Susan Ingham is a
co-owner of KASA Architecture in Seattle, Washington. She
joined the Sustasis board in January, 2012.
The mission of KASA Architecture is to create places where people and
the environment can flourish. The goal of each project is to enhance
the lives of the inhabitants while improving each structureís
integration within the larger context of site, neighborhood, landscape,
or city. The work of KASA Architecture encompasses a range of scales:
from creating a reading alcove with a window seat to planning an entire
neighborhood. Projects include single-family homes (both new and
existing), cabins, multi-family housing, urban design, commercial
tenant improvement work, exhibition design, and furniture.
KASA Architecture was founded by Susan Ingham in 2004. Born and raised
in Seattle, Washington, Susan also spent a short time in Japan as an
exchange student. She continued her studies in California, receiving
both her bachelorís and masterís degrees in architecture from the
University of California at Berkeley. While at Berkeley, Susan studied
and worked intensively with noted professor, architect, and author
Christopher Alexander and his colleagues (author of A Pattern Language
and other books), and participated in architectural study programs and
workshops in the United Kingdom, Italy, Germany, and Turkey. Prior to
founding KASA Architecture, Susan Ingham worked in architectural
offices in San Francisco, Boston, Philadelphia, Berkeley, and Seattle.
In 2005, Susan participated as a founding member of the Building
Process Alliance, an international group of architects, builders, and
planners who share similar backgrounds, values, and processes with
regard to improving the built environment one structure at a time.
