Christina Marsh is Adjunct Professor of Architecture at California College of the Arts. Her work focuses on developing and exploiting the boundaries and interfaces of architecture, such as those between the building and the site, the individual and the public, or the envelope and the environment. By understanding such relationships at multiple scales, the challenges of conventional construction are taken as opportunities to articulate new design concepts and interdependencies. Ms. Marsh teaches studios in the Master's program.

Ms. Marsh has extensive professional experience in the Bay Area, focusing on educational and institutional projects. She is currently a project architect at Leddy Maytum Stacy Architects, leading the design and management of the North Beach Library project in San Francisco, a proposed LEED silver building anchoring the western edge of the Joe DiMaggio park expansion. Previously she worked on a series of educational projects at Starkweather Bondy Architecture, including the master planning and conceptual design for a new high school campus nestled in an 80 acre site south of Sacramento, the design for the conversion of a 2.5 acre public elementary school campus into a daycare facility, and the renovation of an existing concrete industrial building into a school gymnasium space. She has also worked with Fougeron Architecture and SMWM.

Ms. Marsh is a licensed architect in the state of California and a LEED BD+C accredited professional. She received her Master in Architecture from the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University and her Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
