Junior Architectural Designer

Hi, my name is Clarisse. I've recently graduated from Rhode Island School of Design with a B.Arch professional degree. I'm interested in designing for the betterment of smaller fringe communities. I think that good architecture comes from the careful consideration of the human condition, to support its daily functions, enable potentialities, and grow with the built environment.
