Hampton University, Hampton, VA, US, MArch, Architecture

Hampton University's program is a five year MArch, heavily weighted in urban design study projects. While studying, I have had the opportunity to travel abroad to Spain, Czech Republic, Greece, and France. From September 2009 to October 2011 I had the opportunity to aid in the design, construction, and operation of our Solar Decathlon 2011 entry, The Unit 6. This project added greatly to my knowledge of green and energy saving technologies and was an extremely valuable experience that aided in my architecture education.
