Vera Adams is an assistant professor in the Department of Urban Planning at Ball State University. She holds a Masters in Architecture as well as City and Regional Planning from UC-Berkeley, an MBA from Northern Illinois, and an undergraduate degree in Man and Environment from University of Illinois-Urbana. Vera teaches courses in environment and design, design communications and the history and theory of planning. Adams emphasizes the importance of understanding urban design, housing, and planning in her courses to help develop a well-rounded, educated student. In addition to teaching, Adams was a practicing architect at Daniel, Mann, Johnson + Mendenhall, Engineers, Architects and Planners, which is now owned by AECOM International.
Vera has participated in many preservation-minded projects, including restoration of the San Francisco Waterfront, incorporating a series of water front properties with significant historical value. She also led the Railroad Roundhouse Adaptive Reuse project which transformed the structure from a train maintenance building to office, retail and open space with underground parking at base of San Francisco’s Telegraph Hill. The historic State Belt Railroad of California was a short line that served San Francisco's waterfront until the 1990s and played an important role in World War II.
