The Minneapolis College of Art and Design has welcomed five new candidates to serve on the Board of Trustees.

Kristine Anderson


A native of Arizona and California, for Kristine, architecture is storytelling. After graduating from high school, she returned to the Midwest to attend the University of Minnesota, where she received her B.A. and a Master of Architecture. Kristine has received numerous awards for her designs and her projects have been showcased on the AIA MN Homes by Architects Tour and in local, regional and national publications. 

 Kristine joined PKA in 2009 and was named a partner in 2014 and managing principal in 2020.  She also served as an adjunct faculty member in the School of Architecture within the College of Design at the University of Minnesota for more than a decade. She continues to be engaged in the College’s Mentor program, inspiring students and instilling confidence, autonomy and other vital skills. She also provides portfolio reviews and serves as a guest speaker and guest crit for studios, encouraging each student to develop their design thinking with thoughtful examination of the work to discover the essential purity of the design.

When Kristine’s not working, she enjoys a vast array of creative pursuits including watercolor and oil painting, photography, sketching and cooking. She also loves spending time with her husband Tom and their two Corgis, in and around the cabin they designed and built near Knife River in northern Minnesota.
