“Ultimately, the built environment must cater to the human experience. I believe the most valuable part is understanding how we can work together to apply our knowledge and experience in order to enhance value in the lives of others.”
In high school, Alex took three architecture classes with Mr. Leicht, and pursued it in college, as he was accepted into Philadelphia University’s 5 year Bachelor of Architecture program. In college, he moved from hand drawings, drafting, and model making to more advanced programs, such as Revit and Rhino. Alex utilized his love of photography and graphic design to advance his architecture skills further. Alex was involved in the American Institute of Architecture Students during his time at PhilaU, and became Chapter President his 5th year. After his third year of college, Alex had an internship with a real estate development company, and after his fourth year, he had another internship with Gensler. He worked for Gensler through his 5th year of school, and now has a full-time job at the company in Philadelphia.
In his spare time, Alex bikes, hikes, and travels. After his 2nd year at college, he biked from Maine to Florida with friends, a 2,800 mile journey, in just 31 days.
