Andrea Ytzen, AIA


Andrea joined the Slingshot team after graduating from Iowa State University with her Bachelor of Architecture in 2014. She was drawn to the exploratory nature of the projects the Slingshot team tends to take on as well as the process of constant learning our firm holds in high regard.

When it comes to her role at Slingshot, Andrea is invested in the process of a project from start to finish. She enjoys exploring the fascinating art of creating buildings that surprise and delight our clients. The size and closeness of the Slingshot team has allowed her to grow from an open environment where all ideas and abilities are considered when it comes to discovering how to best serve the client.

Andrea is an avid biker and enjoys trading in her four wheels for two to explore new places. She also enjoys reading and practicing martial arts.
