Annya Ramírez-Jiménez, AIA
For the last 18 years, Annya has been a frequent commuter between New York and San Juan. Now at Marvel, her dual-residency allows her to forge a seamless collaboration between the two offices. She oversees the architecture focused staff of the firm. Annya tackles complex projects with ease and is focused on achieving consensus while maintaining a clear design voice for each project. As a passionate advocate for equity, her career focuses on building a more equitable city that balances its resources to serve all residents.
Annya is currently leading the design and development of Rockaway Village; a mixed-use project which will provide downtown Far Rockaway with 1,700 new affordable housing units. She also leads the DDC-Bronx Animal Care facility, which will offer animal care, adoption services, and educational opportunities for the local community, as well as NYCEDC Orchard Beach Pavilion Rehabilitation, which will revitalize the pavilion into an accessible, modern facility, while retaining the iconic architecture and design.
Annya was raised in Puerto Rico, and proudly attended the University of Puerto Rico School of Architecture, then settled in New York City after receiving her Master of Architecture from Columbia University GSAPP in 2003. She currently serves as a board member for The Clemente Center and is a member of the AIANY Honors Committee.
