In practice, Julie and her partner, Keith Kaseman launched their design firm, KBAS in 2002 following the unanimous selection of their design proposal for the Pentagon Memorial in Arlington, VA which opened to the public in on the 7th anniversary of the attacks. In addition, KBAS was commissioned to design a memorial to the Space Shuttle Columbia and its crew in Nacogdoches, TX which is still in schematics. Compact and agile, KBAS flexes its robust capacity for research and development, spatial exploration, advanced production, geometric resolution and material experimentation through all of its work.
Prior to launching KBAS, Julie worked for over 3 years in retail design and development with clients such as Calvin Klien Jeans, Donna Karen and Ralph Lauren Polo.
