Branner Fellow and received the Henry Adams Medal and Certificate of Merit as well as the Howard Friedman Thesis Prize. Before moving to the US, Steinmuller worked in architecture firms in Stuttgart and Berlin, where she was involved in work on urban housing as well as landmark government projects. While a graduate student at Berkeley, she returned to Berlin during a year-long research fellowship to investigate urban-scale transformational processes, a project that also included substantial work in Johannesburg and Belfast. Steinmullera��s work with Studio URBIS includes urban-scale projects in China that were also linked to student research excursions with design studios at the University of California, Berkeley as well as CCA. Her current research investigates the relationship of visualization methods to design thinking, as well as temporary urban strategies and their capacity to inform longer-term urban development.
