Participating in the Solar Decathlon is the greatest opportunity I’ve been given as a student. Working on a project like this has allowed me to gain real life experience and learn new skills that I wouldn’t have learned anywhere else in school. As a senior architecture student, I’m thrilled to be part of something so big to end my undergraduate career with. My role in GRoW Buffalo is to help design the interior of the house. Part of my job as an interior designer is to research sustainable and affordable materials while also designing furniture as both part of the architecture and as movable pieces. Taking on the task as an interior designer has enabled me to make smart design choices that support the project conceptually and add to the market appeal of the home. Working with such a motivated and talented team of students has been incredibly inspiring and I couldn’t be happier to be involved. Let’s GRoW Buffalo!
