A past of designing interactions for the physical world.


As an architect, Amber managed many projects from conception to inhabitation; helping to visualize initial concepts through physical and computer modeling, overseeing construction management, and celebrating with clients upon moving-in. She took particular interest in collaborating with engineers and craftsmen to bring to life details which aligned with the overall design direction. 

While working as an architect in Seattle, she also co-founded ‘Free Time’ an experimental multidisciplinary design studio with Kate Bailey. The products developed at Free Time were exhibited at various prestigious institutions such as the Heller Gallery, Sight Unseen, and the Bellevue Arts Museum - others were sold in museum shops such as the New Museum, the Guggenheim, the Frye Art Museum, and the Natural History Museum of Utah. 

All architectural images show below represent work done while she was employed at Workshop AD. Please email amber at murray[at] if there are any questions.
