Georgia’s research focuses on buildings as the connecting point between large-scale political and economic forces, the vision of the architect and client, and the everyday users of buildings and spaces. For her dissertation, she studied the Denver Art Museum as an example of the Bilbao Effect, and she has experience with Post-Occupancy Evaluation research, both conducting and teaching it.
