Architectural Intern

Sarah has always viewed architecture as an experience rather than just a physical object.  She sees architecture as going beyond form and aesthetics, and that it is the space in between the form where people start to interact with the building and each other that architecture exists.

Sarah is a true Midwesterner, having been born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska.  She started her journey to pursue architecture while in high school, where she received two awards through the Metro Omaha Builders Association Architectural Awards for architectural design and detailed working drawings.  Sarah received her Bachelor of Science in Design from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2011.  During the fall of 2010, Sarah had the opportunity to study abroad through the College of Architecture at the Dublin Institute of Technology in Ireland.  In May 2013, Sarah received her Master of Architecture at the Illinois Institute of Technology.  During her final semester at IIT, Sarah’s thesis project focused on a design for a disaster relief housing unit that created a new system to help disaster victims transition between temporary and permanent housing.

Outside of the office, Sarah uses her time to indulge in all that Chicago has to offer.  She is always up for trying new restaurants and enjoys attending cultural events and street festivals.  Also, being raised a Nebraska football and Chicago Blackhawks fan, Sarah never passes up the opportunity to go watch a game and support her teams.
