Alexis Coir

Project Lead, Architect

Alexis is an alumnus of the University of Michigan where she earned an B.S.Arch with distinction, and Harvard University where she graduated with an M.Arch with distinction. Originally from Detroit, Michigan, Alexis spent her childhood growing up in the arts & architecture community of Cranbrook, where her father was the director of archives. The dichotomy of city to campus strongly shaped her relationship to architecture and the built environment. Before joining WA, she worked at multiple firms including PLY Architecture in Ann Arbor, MI, Marble Fairbanks, A+I, and Frederick Tang Architecture in New York City.
