Brooklyn, NY, US



My name is Karissa Campos and I am graduated from Pratt Institute in 2017 with a Bachelor of Architecture & a Minor in Sustainability. Currently, I work as a project management assistant at Home Studios in Brooklyn, NY.

In the Fall of 2018, I will be attending Harvard University or University of Pennsylvania to pursue a graduate degree in landscape architecture (making a decision this month!)

I have had many opportunities within the field of architecture & interior design, but I am looking to further my knowledge in the field of landscape and urban design.

Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, NY, US, BArch, Architecture

Pratt Institute was very much a design-based school, but also offered many classes that furthered my knowledge in the more professional field of architecture. During my time there, I found a deep interest in sustainable studies. I thus proceeded to mix the two interests - architecture and sustainability - together, which I believe gave me a unique experience.

Classes outside of studio include: Introduction to landscape; Power, Pollution & Profit; Environmental Justice; Planet Ocean; The Neopicturesque; Building Environments; Critical Thinking & the Evolution of Form

My thesis partner and I submit our degree project which focused on Freshkills Park, previously known as Fresh Kills Landfill. In short, our project focused on the multiple identities landscapes hold, and how one can expose them. In our project, we used the landscapes methane generated by its previous identity as a landfill to generate the future identity of a park.
