University of Notre Dame, BArch, Architecture

Founded on the traditions of classical architecture, proportion, and methods, the Notre Dame School of Architecture provided me with a very thorough and valuable perspective on the relationship between architecture and the built environment. The school provides a very humane take on the practice of Architecture, illustrating the world of architecture as a collaborative practice that should benefit all: the individual, the community, the surrounding environment, and the world as a whole. Through the courses and teaching that I experienced, I am very well versed in hand drafting and drawing construction, watercolor painting, and hand rendering methods. All of these techniques are valuable on their own, but also intuitively inform my use of more modern techniques in very beneficial ways.
