Julia makes connections between history, culture, and the environment to enhance experiences through design. She questions and learns from what currently exists to propose new, thoughtful solutions. Julia earned a Bachelor of Architecture from Penn State, with minors in Architectural History, Anthropology and Environmental Inquiry. This expanded range of study was a challenge that shaped her into the designer she is today. Julia is currently working on designs for the University at Albany, Farmingdale State College, and Kaufman Astoria Studios
During her time at Penn State University, Julia was recognized with several honors. In a National Concrete Masonry Association sponsored studio competition, her design received an honorable mention. Two of Julia’s studio projects have been exhibited by the communities in which the project was located. She participated in the 2013 National Association of Home Builders’ Residential Construction Competition. Her team’s project proposal won 6th place among many other schools and universities competing.
