Amanda Markovic



Amanda is driven by design’s power to transform experience and empower communities in urban centers, the workplace, or academia. Her work includes award-winning projects for the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh including the Teen Hive and Knoxville Branch renovation and the Maya Design headquarters. She is also a co-founder of GBBN’s annual Design Issues Series (DIS). A great communicator who facilitates productive discussions among multiple project stakeholders, Amanda commands the karaoke mic equally well, especially when an 80s power ballad comes over the speakers.
