    Anna Thomas

    Anna Thomas is a Senior pursuing a dual degree in Architectural Studies and Civil Engineering with a minor in Studio Arts. Her interest in architecture initially started with a design course but has since been cultivated by her work in building information modeling, construction management, green building and integrated project delivery methods. This summer, Anna will travel to Berlin, where she will complete an internship with an architecture firm. As she finishes up at Pitt, she plans on devoting more time to the Pitt chapter of AIAS, learning 3D printing, and backpacking as much as possible. After graduation (and far down the road) Anna hopes to obtain her licenses in architecture and engineering.  

    Anna is thrilled to have been chosen for HAAARCH!!! 2017 to display her work from Studio 1, where students experiment with contextual mapping and folding buildings.

    Juliane O'Day

    Juliane O’Day is a junior majoring in Architectural Studies, a field that she was interested in for quite some time before coming to Pitt.

After graduation in spring 2018, Juliane plans to attend graduate school to become a licensed architect.  

    At HAAARCH!!! 2017, Juliane will be presenting her group installation project from the class “Approaches to the Built Environment” in fall 2016.

    Caroline Fazzini

    Caroline Fazzini is a junior, majoring in the History of Art and Architecture and Studio Arts and pursuing a minor in Museum Studies. She is currently serving as an undergraduate teaching assistant for Dr. Erin Peters' Museum Studies special topics class on audience evaluation. This semester she has also been awarded the Archival Scholar Research Award and is currently researching the Frick Fine Arts Library's collection of artists' books and the Hillman Library's special collection of feminist periodicals. She is interested in the relationship between the physical form of an object and meaning—particularly feminist narratives about materiality, gender and the body—and how both the artists' books and periodicals address feminist issues, yet with the potential to reach and influence different intended audiences due to the mode and media that are used. After graduating from Pitt, Caroline plans to attend graduate school and eventually work in a museum as an art educator.

    Gene Han

    Gene Han is a sophomore majoring in Architectural Studies and minoring in Studio Arts. Originally attracted to the popular pre-med track, Gene switched when he realized he was more intrigued in creatively expressing his ideas with hands on work rather than regurgitating specific functions of the endomembrane system. The studio life seduced him.  

    Coming from the metropolitan area of Philadelphia, the city of brotherly love, Gene himself fell in love with the issues surrounding urban design and the intricate detailing of immense structures. He hopes to continue to cultivate his interests after graduation by pursuing a masters in architecture in New York.  

    At HAAARCH!!! 2017, Gene will be presenting his final Foundations Studio model as well as a description of his works from Approaches to the Built Environment with his colleagues Alana Erwin, Brian Glatz, Jacob Gunderman, and Rose Hawk.
