Mara Ayuso, AIA
Mara graduated from the University of Virginia in 1998 with a Bachelor of Science in Architecture degree, and continued at McGill University to obtain a Master of Architecture in 2003. Her experience has taken her to Denmark’s International Study Center in Copenhagen, and work with Dean Maltz + Shigeru Ban in New York. Ms. Ayuso joined Abelow Sherman Architects in 2004 and initially assisted with the design and management of a number of residences and restaurants, most notably the Art Collector’s Loft. Her responsibilities have increased over the years and Ms. Ayuso now leads projects. Her capacity to manage numerous responsibilities at once makes her a valuable architect who is always accurate, and capable of juggling multiple assignments simultaneously. Ms. Ayuso is the firm’s resident expert in computer-aided design software utilization, and one of a number of architects on staff with outstanding knowledge of New York’s unique pre-war apartment buildings.
