Hello! My name is David Ackerman, and I am a recent graduate of the Bachelor of Architecture program at the Pennsylvania State University. I believe that architecture takes on a greater responsibility than simply creating spaces, but creating an environment that interacts with its surroundings and creates a narrative within its urban fabric and with the people that occupy it.

Throughout time and growth in the architecture program at Penn State over the past five years, I have particularly enjoyed designing not just a building to satisfy prompt requirements, but developing a unique narrative that creates a piece of architecture for the public. Attention to details, and seeing and understanding how pieces work and come together to create a whole, as well as sustainability are aspects of design that I truly enjoy and strive to continue to advance my skills in as I mature in a professional setting.
