Hi, I'm Landon Beard!

I am currently pursuing a full-time position at an architecture or architectural modeling firm in or around New York City.  I am a recent BArch graduate of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln where I discovered the significance of, and further my passion for design.  My medium of choice is physical modeling, but my education and work experience have afforded me a variety of skills, most notably:

  • 3D modeling especially within Rhino and SketchUp with experience in Revit and AutoCad
  • The use and maintenance of Laser Cutters, 3D printers, Plotters, and other design-aiding machinery
  • The generation and modification of Construction Documents

I have a theatrical background and have developed an appreciation for Art and its societal influence.  I am passionate about cross-medium cooperation and allowing artistic and design principles to affect every aspect of my life. I am interested in learning in contrasting environments and allowing my experiences to refine my perspective.  I am a skilled collaborator and pride myself on my ability to connect people with differing personalities.  Most of all I strive for knowledge and experience and make an effort to regard every individual as having a unique and valuable disposition.
