Angela Amoia was brought up drawing her surroundings not to record their presence but to send a message—an emotion—about their sense of place. Her family background includes recognized native Italian landscape artists. She was encouraged to study architecture by her parents as a more lucrative profession than drawing or painting. Amoia has practiced and taught architecture in New York since she graduated from Columbia University with a Master’s Degree in Advanced Architectural Design. She has taught various courses at New York Tech, including history, theory, and design studio. She has also practiced with notable architects such as Kohn Pedersen Fox. Her role as project manager ranged in scale from skyscrapers to large-scale academic facilities and residential loft buildings. Her responsibility was to insure the projects were detailed and built per the design intent. Her most memorable recent building projects include: Ernst and Young Times Square Tower, New York; Wharton Business School, Pennsylvania; NYU Law School, New York, for Kohn Pedersen Fox; 171–173 MacDougal St., New York (TRA Studio); and most recently, 763 55th St., Brooklyn, for AmoiaCody Architecture.
