Crystal M. Hanley

Architectural Designer


Crystal Hanley brings to JHPA a well-rounded background in architectural technology, design, and conservation practices with experience in a variety of international heritage projects.

Ms. Hanley’s interest in built heritage began with the Carleton Immersive Media Studio (CIMS) in Ottawa, Canada where she worked extensively collaborating on the BIM documentation of Canada’s three parliament buildings as part of their respective rehabilitation projects.

Prior to joining JHPA Ms. Hanley worked as a consultant for the Getty Conservation Institute where she travelled to Kuño Tambo, Peru to provide a thorough condition assessment of the original wall paintings of a 16th-century adobe church. She later continued her work with the Getty in Los Angeles providing documentation of the wall paintings of an archaeological site in Herculaneum, Italy. Ms. Hanley also worked with the Welfare Association of Jerusalem providing photogrammetric surveying of a commercial street outside of the Old City as well as at the Chapel of Ascension pilgrimage site.

Crystal spent several years working for RWDI - an international wind engineering firm building both physical and digital architectural models for wind tunnel testing purposes before attending the Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada.

In 2016, Ms. Hanley earned her advanced master degree from the Raymond Lemaire International Centre for Conservation in Belgium. Her keen interest in the ability of adaptive re-use initiatives to drive conservation practices led Ms. Hanley to Santiago de Cuba where she focused her thesis research. The research involved a case study of an abandoned industrial heritage site and how the community could benefit, both socially and economically, from a sensitive, innovative and sustainable architectural intervention.
