dc.description.abstractMy internship was divided into two parts to explore both the construction and design aspect of the architecture field. First I interned at Space4 Architecture, a firm based in New York. There I created scaled foam models, 3-D renderings and an installation piece. This expanded my skill set that I gained from my studios at Mount Holyoke. I worked on two major projects while interning there. The first was a competition piece for a contemporary art museum in Lima, Peru. The second project was a Dolce and Gabbana store in Soho, New York. This project carried over to the second part of my internship, a general contracting firm hired by Space4 Architecture. There I hired subcontractors, attended site meetings and assisted managing the worksite. Both of these firms were run by an Italian office. It was interesting to see the crossover of Italian style into an American setting.

dc.description.panabstract“Design Across Borders” presents cross-continental perspectives in the interdisciplinary field of architectural design. The panel encompasses the thought processes, research and design principles that different cultures, traditions and geographies learn and influence. It offers four worldly perspectives, as the students come from Ethiopia, Nepal, Malaysia, and the United States. The panelists utilized their knowledge and experience gained in Mount Holyoke studios, courses and seminars and applied it to develop projects in fields related to architecture. The design experiences range from residential, commercial and ecological to sustainability metrics and general contracting for simple to complex spaces. The panelists brought their knowledge and perspectives to small private firms and international non-profits. These internships allowed the panelists to gain practical skills in a wide range of fields within architecture and encouraged them to address key issues within the building design and construction industry.
