An architect with a strong history of working fluidly across multiple project types, Cori Cassidy joined A359 Partners in Architecture in 2011. She has conceptualized and managed projects of various scales and complexities for education, corporate, civic and retail clients such as Macy’s, 3CDC and P&G. 

Cori has a passion for repurposing underutilized spaces and recently provided design direction for the adaptive reuse of a former Sears building as a collaborative corporate and education space for the University of Cincinnati. Her transformative work extends to large scale civic projects where she collaborated with multiple consultants on the design and redevelopment of Over-the-Rhine’s signature green space, Washington Park.

Cori holds a bachelor’s degree in environmental design from Miami University and a Master of Architecture from the University of Texas at Austin. She is an active volunteer in the design community and has served on the boards of AFC and AIA Cincinnati were she is a past president of the organization. Her passion for preservation has led to multiple adaptive reuse and historic renovations in her portfolio.

Nature is a touchpoint for Cori. She and her family regularly kayak and visit national parks. For her, the months spent planning are almost as much fun as the trips themselves.
