Nixie Pardi is a graduate from Parsons The New School for Design in Interior Design. Through the curriculum of School of Constructive Environments (Product Design, Interior Design, Architecture, and Lighting), she is grounded in an environment where there is an integration of multiple of design fields, resulting in a unique approach to solving problems and creating a vision.
She is interested in exploring architecture that promotes a public way of development and its importance in impacting the community.
