    Antonio Parente

    Antonio Parente is a sophomore at the University of Pittsburgh, majoring in Architectural Studies, with a certificate in Civil Engineering. Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Antonio always wanted to matriculate to Pitt, but was unsure what field he wanted to study. In high school, he took drafting and computer drawing classes, which piqued his interest in architecture. Outside of class, his experiences with woodworking and as a youth basketball coach have helped him develop the important skills of patience, perseverance, and creativity. Over the next few years, Antonio plans to hone these skills along with others needed to succeed in the field of architecture. 

    At HAAARCH!!!, Antonio will be presenting a group installation project from the class “Approaches to the Built Environment” with Brynne Mulloy, Juliane O’Day, Tobias Raether, and Blanche Tarabrella.

In the fall of 2016, she helped create an exhibition for the University Art Gallery, Paradoxes of Play: Concrete and Conceptualist Proposals from Brazil and Beyond.

    The Botany Hall project inspired Eliza to apply to the Office of Undergraduate Research’s London Field Studies Program in the summer of 2017. She was accepted and is now conducting her own research on the advantages of subjectivity over objectivity in botanical illustrations for scientific purposes, which she will continue while in London this summer.
