Olivia Snell, Assoc. AIA, LEED AP BD+C


Through her architectural education, Olivia has grown to understand and appreciate the power of design and its ability to impact people, communities, and cities. She truly believes that everyone – regardless of social status or economic background – has a right to experience quality architecture.

With this mission in mind, Olivia spent a year working with the Center for Public Interest Design (CPID). She participated in several phases of the POD Initiative: creating “sleeping pods” for local houseless populations in Portland. She’s excited to continue developing these skills with the affordable housing team at MWA.

When she’s not working, Olivia loves to travel, play music, spend time outdoors, and discover new thrift stores… all fueled by several cups of coffee!
