Biography

Heather Potts, AIA, is an undergraduate studio instructor in the School of Architecture and a graduate of Georgia Institute of Technology’s Master of Architecture program. She completed her undergraduate studies at the University of Georgia’s Interior Design program in the Lamar Dodd School of Art, where she has since taught courses in drafting, rendering, and Building Information Modeling. Heather is the founder and principal of Easy Tiger Architecture in Atlanta, Georgia.

As a studio instructor, Heather is committed to fostering an environment for creative and exploratory thinking that is responsive to, but not restrained by, the boundaries and limitations of reality. As a practitioner, she tries to implement an inquisitive and curious design process to balance the stringent demands of the profession. As an architect, Heather strives to promote equality in the profession and advocates for advances in accessible education, and it is through her involvement in both academia and professional practice that she is able to find the necessary balance in her work.
