During the Academic Year 2014/2015, she will be a fellow of the Berlin Program of the FU Berlin and the German Studies Association (GSA). Anna-Maria holds degrees in architecture from Columbia University, New York and the University of Technology, Munich. Her work has received funding through a DAAD Fellowship as well as grants and fellowships from Columbia University and Princeton University. Additionally to teaching and co-curating exhibitions and workshops, her research has been published in Architecture and the Paradox of Dissidence, Ines Weizman ed. (Routledge 2013), and magazines such as Baumeister, Arch+, Architectural Review and others. She has co-curated Radical Pedagogies: Action-Reaction-Interaction at the Monditalia section of the 14th Architectural Biennale in Venice, which has received a Special Mention from the Jury.
