AnnaLisa Meyboom the Director of TIPS Lab as well as an Associate Professor at the University of British Columbia School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture (SALA). She holds a degree in engineering from University of Waterloo and a Masters of Architecture degree from University of British Columbia. Her practice Infrastructure Studio as well as her research focuses on the design of future public transportation infrastructure and its critical and catalytic relationship to public space. Of particular interest is the impact of technology on future transportation infrastructure and its relationship to society and public space.
She has been a practicing bridge engineer since 1993 working on such projects as the Gardiner Expressway Bridges Project in Toronto, Highway 401 widening in the Toronto corridor, Region of York Subway Extension, Sea to Sky Highway bid for widening, and the South Fraser Perimeter Road. She graduated from her Masters of Architecture in 2007, has since been widely published and has lectured at Harvard University for the class Infrastructure for the 21st Century.
Her research interests involve the state of the art in integrated design of future transportation infrastructure as well as emerging technologies in mechatronic architecture. She teaches the core structural engineering courses for the School of Architecture as well as the Advanced Structures and Digital Methods seminars and Design Studios in digital technology, mechatronics and architecture.
