Rafael Viñoly Architects, Team Lead
Mitchell Architectural Group, Intern/Junior Architect
The Mitchell Architectural Group, p.c. is devoted solely to the practice of research, health care and advanced technology architecture and planning. Project sizes range from minor health care facility renovations and upgrades to major research and development laboratories and medical teaching facilities. Working closely with the project team exposed me to projects of various scopes and sizes and allowed me to gain working experience in all project phases during my two cooperative learning semesters and breaks in-between classes at Wentworth Institute of Technology.
Caldwell & Walsh Construction, Intern
Caldwell & Walsh Building Construction, Inc. provides construction management and general contracting services for commercial and institutional clients with projects of varying size and complexity. During my time at Caldwell & Walsh I shadowed estimators, project managers, site supervisors, and general supervisors on various types of projects. I participated in the review of many drawings and sub bids. Assisted and observed the process of many bid proposals.
Wentworth Institute of Technology, MArch, Architecture
The Master of Architecture (M.Arch.) program at Wentworth provides graduates with the insight, skills, and perspective to pursue distinguished and rewarding careers in architecture and the allied design fields while also supplying the academic credential required for registration as an architect. Graduate study in architecture is an exhilarating and challenging enterprise, an opportunity for students to develop a focused position within a broad and rapidly evolving field. Wentworth’s Master of Architecture program encompasses both the art and science of architecture by examining the history, theory, culture, and technology of the built environment. The graduate curriculum promotes research and design investigations on the linkage between theoretical frameworks, design intentions, and the tangible, material nature of architecture. A rigorous process of critical thinking is instilled through studios, seminars, and thesis preparation coursework.
