About 

Joshua Ralls Graduated from Kansas State University with his M.ARCH Degree who has spent his academic career in studying the value of perfect geometry and its effect on the human psyche through
architecture. He is developing his thesis project under the Distinguished Regnier Visiting Professor Jay Seibenmorgen, AIA, LEED AP BD+C, on the sustainable redesigned master plan of the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn, NY.  I have developed an experiment in which analyzes human perception as one moves through thresholds and portals, and the degree to which it has an effect on the perception of the space that follows. I studied topics in neuroscience and architecture under Prof. Condia and has IRB certification.

Education 

Kansas State University, Manhattan, KS, US, MArch, Architecture

This 5 year accredited Masters of Architecture program develop skills for real world applications. Beginning at conceptual design, the program aims to foster the creativity of a student as well as shape them into becoming masterful architects. All areas of the design process are taught, from Schematic Design to Design Development, and into Construction Documentation.

Throughout my years at Kansas State University I ventured in the world of Neuroscience and Architecture. Fostering this path was my study abroad experience to Orvieto, Italy, and during my thesis year I became IRB Certified and began crafting my experiment of architectural space and how neuroscience can give us an insight onto how humans experience space.

My thesis project focused on the research of Brooklyn, NY, Gowanus Canal, an EPA Superfund Cleanup site. I, under the mentorship of the Distinguished Regnier Visiting Professor Jay Seibenmorgen, AIA, LEED AP BD+C of NBBJ, developed this year long project intending to sustainably redesign the Gowanus Canal and provide the community with an environmental, renewable, and cultural center for years to come.
