about kathleen sowle

Kathleen Sowle is an independent architect/designer and builder, educator and artist. As an adjunct faculty member, she has taught design studios at Pratt Institute, her alma mater (1999-2012), and at the College of Art and Design, New Jersey Institute of Technology, Newark, NJ (2013-2014). Much of her design/build work involves spatial and physical interventions into existing historic conditions. While passionate about the preservation of historic, urban structures, historicist she is not. 

As a Board Member, volunteer, and artivist with Art for Change, Inc. (AfC), Kathleen manages the development and implementation of youth focused art programs - engaging artists and activists in providing youth arts workshops through AfC's AB2EKids and AB2ETeens initiatives.

When her hectic schedule allows, she indulges in her secret passion: mixed media sculpture work.
