Architectural models are a powerful communication tool, a timeless skill in architecture with the extraordinary ability to bring complex ideas to life. Every member of the Pickard Chilton design team learns the craft of model-making, guided by the expertise of the studio’s two professional model designers: Model Maker Andrew Ostrowitz and Woo Lee, Director of Fabrication.
The Architecture Construction and Engineering (ACE) Mentor program seeks first to give all students an entry point into the art and science of the construction world. The chance to work directly with industry professionals gives students a unique opportunity to approach a real-world design problem and the tools to use it to explore potential careers in the AEC Industry.
We are excited to welcome to the Pickard Chilton team Sofia Zavala, Yuhao Wu, Mary Le, Madison Seip and Dhyan Sharma. We invite you to read the following perspectives on their personal design interests, first impressions and experiences working in our New Haven studio.
