Margaret Ikeda founded ASSEMBLY, a Berkeley-based architecture office, with Evan Jones in 1994. ASSEMBLY's projects span in scale from furniture to multistory mixed-use housing. Inherent in the name is a focus on connections between physical materials and an understanding of the collaborative process of design. Projects have included the design and fabrication of installations and furnishings as well as large-scale commercial work.
Margaret's awards include the AIA East Bay Exceptional Residential Honor Award (2004) and the Gold Nugget Affordable Housing Award (finalist 2005), both for the Darling Flower Shop building. She was a finalist in the East River Design Competition in 1998.
Margaret began teaching at CCA in 2006 and has been a lecturer at UC Berkeley since 2000.
Adjunct Professor, Architecture
