Assistant Professor of Architecture
Krysten Allbeck was born and raised in Riverside, California and has spent her career cultivating her passion for the intersection between culture and design. She received her BA from UC Riverside in Languages: Spanish and Japanese and her M.Arch I from UCLA. She has experience in architectural design and project management and spent several years working for Walt Disney Imagineering developing new themed entertainment offerings.
She believes that the stories behind why and what we design should be as compelling at the designs themselves and that empathy and service create the foundation for the strongest ideas.
