Amber Lynn Bartosh


Prof. Amber Bartosh in a LEED accredited architect and interior designer who constructs and examines the immersive infrastructures of the built environment using hybrid-reality and interactive design experiences. This research is supported by her professional practice and demonstrated through design-centric physical construction, exhibition, and installation. She has designed and managed award-winning projects for competition, bid & design build processes in the United States, China, Kuwait, and the United Arab Emirates.  Her work has been exhibited internationally in Australia, Italy, and Taiwan and published in multiple journals. 

Assistant Professor at Syracuse University and a Syracuse Center of Excellence Faculty Fellow, Bartosh is co-director of the Interactive Design and Visualization Lab (IDVL). The IDVL is a collaborative design cluster for interdisciplinary research, community outreach and professional partnership to create better living environments.  Her visualizations communicate data related to phenomenology, building system performance, energy/fluid flows, and resource allocation. Custom-programmed environments couple digital simulation with video-game engines to provide interactive user interfaces via virtual reality, augmented reality and digital projection.   Implementation ranges in scale from material investigations to constructed façade studies and urban geographies.
