Annie Barrett is an architect, educator, and principal of BAS, a Brooklyn-based platform for architectural design, speculation and collaboration. The studio’s work focuses on objects, buildings, and ideas that engage the public life of the city, and the studio undertakes the practice of architecture as a process of shaping social, political, and civic relationships through rigorous experimentation with forms and conjectures.
BAS was a nominee for the 2018 PS1 YAP, the runner up for the 2017 Flatiron Holiday Installation, a finalist for the 2016 Times Square Valentine Competition, and our proposal Live Ends was a winner of the 2015 Gowanus By Design competition. Prior to forming BAS in 2014, Annie led the design of numerous cultural and civic projects as a senior project manager at Architecture Research Office including the Flea Theater Performing Arts Complex, the Brooklyn Bridge Park Environmental Education Center, and the Greenwich South Strategic Framework.
