Amanda Stahler joined Fergus Garber Architects full-time in 2018, after interning with us for the past two summers.
Amanda graduated from California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo with a Bachelor of Architecture and minors in Sustainable Environments and Italian Studies. For her senior thesis project, Amanda designed a Women’s Opportunity Center in Rwanda through Journeyman International, an organization that pairs students with humanitarian projects around the world. She completed a set of design and construction documents, and the project is in the process of acquiring funding. This thesis project received awards from the AIA Central Coast and from Cal Poly Architecture Faculty. In addition, Amanda received an AIA San Mateo County Scholarship Award for two years in a row, and she was identified as one of the “30 under 30 Most Influential Women at Cal Poly” from Cal Poly’s Women in Business.
During her college years, Amanda helped build homes in Honduras through Architecture Global Brigades and volunteered with AIA Silicon Valley’s Women in Architecture. She spent her fourth year abroad studying Italian language, culture, and architecture in Florence, Italy and learning about her personal Italian heritage.
She is currently pursuing her architectural license and in her free time enjoys doing yoga, traveling, and welding.
