Amanda Sanders joined RODE in 2021 as a senior project architect / manager. Originally from Iowa, Sanders obtained her Bachelor of Architecture degree from Iowa State University. From there, she landed in Boston with a pit stop in New York City for three and a half years. She loved New York, but her restlessness for outdoor space brought her to Boston—the perfect middle ground between Iowa and New York City. Sanders has experience in a multitude of architecture typologies but is especially interested and involved in historic preservation. She is a member of the Boston Preservation Alliance Young Advisors and the Association of Preservation Technology Northeast Chapter and has worked on numerous historic restoration projects, including Boston Symphony Hall, University of Virginia’s Academical Village (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), and Jose Lluis Sert’s New House on MIT’s campus. She believes that the successful reuse of existing buildings is key to ensuring a sustainable, resilient, and beautiful future for the next generation.
