Olivia Morgan is a 4th year Architecture student at the University of Virginia and a 20-plus year student of life.
Assisting with the renovation of her family’s 80 year old beach cottage, Olivia sensed that beyond the scraping, sanding and painting, there was a higher calling in architectural restoration. This study continued with her recent semester abroad in Italy focusing on Venetian architecture and restoration techniques.
Her fascination with making things has continued to lead to various pursuits, among them, fine arts, theatre and woodworking. Her aspirations to become a professional model maker, drives her design process and attention to detail. Olivia hopes to continue her work through specialization in miniature fabrication with a strong background in architectural model making.
Expanding her horizons Olivia begins to use parametric modeling digitally and physically. She recently delved into grasshopper and coding to create both physical and hypothetical designs. She hopes to find a mediation between her hand crafting roots and digital coding.
Olivia, now one of the top students in her studio, looks forward to finishing up her undergraduate education, and a future career as an architect/model maker.
