Sarah Kusuma Rubritz



Sarah likes to solve her projects’ little puzzles, then to step back to see the cumulative difference of each decision. Whether she’s designing an arts space, a workplace, or an archive, she employs her talent for seeing the big picture without losing sight of the minute details that catapult projects beyond client expectations. Informed by the latest research and design technology, Sarah has helped shape GBBN’s approach to academic libraries. Future-oriented, Sarah approaches problems with the same discipline and tenacity that earned her a black belt in Tae Kwon Do.

The creation of new materials and technology help us move forward, and (slowly) changes the way we think about creating? If I wasn’t an architect maybe I’d be an astronaut, for now let’s focus on Earth.” – Sarah Kusuma Rubritz
