Anne Lawrason Marshall is a Professor of Architecture and American Indian Studies. She is a registered architect who has practiced professionally in various firms including her own office in Berkeley and the office of Pritzker-Prize winner Kevin Roche. Her work with Kevin Roche has been published and exhibited internationally.

Anne teaches design studios at various scales, often service-learning projects with Indigenous communities. She teaches global architectural history, architectural theory, Indigenous architecture, and a seminar titled "Identity and Place in Global Space.” She mentors graduate architecture students and serves on graduate committees of students in disciplines such as anthropology.

Anne’s most recent research, published and presented internationally, examines contemporary Indigenous architecture in North America, with a focus on tribal museums and cultural centers—their roles in identity construction and processes leading to their creation.

Anne Lawrason Marshall is a Professor of Architecture and American Indian Studies at the University of Idaho. A registered architect, she practiced professionally in various firms including her own office in Berkeley and the Connecticut office of Pritzker-Prize winner Kevin Roche. Her work with Kevin Roche has been published and exhibited at Yale University, the Museum of the City of New York, the National Building Museum, and Arthur Eric Gallery (Toronto).

Her most recent research — published in three book chapters and presented at international conferences in Dubai, New York, Melbourne, Beirut, and Oxford — examines architectures within contemporary Indigenous communities in North America, with a focus on tribal museums and cultural centers. She is writing a book titled “Indigenous Architecture: Creating The Museum At Warm Springs” in which she explores the role of architecture and its potential as a tool for decolonization.

She has also conducted research on the architecture and siting of great houses at Chaco Canyon, New Mexico, and presented her work more than 20 times as an invited speaker and as a conference participant. Her Chaco scholarship — supported by numerous grants from the Graham Foundation, the Idaho Humanities Council, University of California, Berkeley, University of Illinois, and University of Idaho — has been the subject of three published book chapters and an extensive website.

Another research project is the Society of Architectural Historians' peer-reviewed, online encyclopedia of architecture. Together with three other colleagues, Professor Marshall identified, photographed, researched, and wrote about the 100 most representative and significant buildings in Idaho to create Idaho’s Classic Buildings in SAH Archipedia. An introductory essay and 119 peer-reviewed entries are published online: http://sah-archipedia.org/essays/ID-01

Designing Tribal Museums and Cultural Centers

Indigenous communities have established approximately 200 tribal museums and cultural centers in North America. What critical activities do tribal members and designers do to create culturally appropriate Indigenous architectures that meet needs of contemporary Indigenous communities? And how are Indigenous traditions honored during processes of designing? To address these questions, I interviewed tribal members, designers, and others involved in designing The Museum At Warm Springs in central Oregon. I am writing a book, “Indigenous Architecture: Creating the Museum at Warm Springs,” that begins to answer these questions and explore the role of architecture and its potential as a tool for decolonization.

The Siting of Chacoan Great Houses

In Chaco Canyon, New Mexico, Indigenous people constructed more than a dozen monumental stone buildings, known as great houses c. AD 850-1150. The central question of much of my research has been: Why were each of the great houses built where they were? To help document the great houses in their landscapes, I photographed and created QuickTime VRs—dynamic, digital panoramic images. I developed a web site with maps, plans, QuickTime VRs, and text introducing each outlying great house: Anasazi Great Houses. For a complete list of my Chaco publications and presentations, go to the Bibliography of the Chaco Research Archive.

Idaho’s Classic Buildings in SAH Archipedia

The Society of Architectural Historians is creating an open-source, peer-reviewed, online encyclopedia of architecture that includes at least 100 buildings from each of the 50 states in the United States. I was Co-Coordinator of Idaho’s Classic Buildings in SAH Archipedia. Together with colleagues, I identified, photographed, researched, and wrote about more than 100 significant and representative buildings in Idaho. Collectively we published an introductory essay and 119 peer-reviewed entries 2016-2019: https://sah-archipedia.org/essays/ID-01
