Sean Echnat

Sean Echnat is a Pittsburgh native and a senior majoring in Architectural Studies.  He began his time at Pitt knowing he wanted to be involved with the design of buildings and started his studies with civil engineering.  His interest in the history of architecture along with its form made him wary of his original decision so he decided to switch majors in order to pursue his passion of design and to escape the lack of creativity in engineering.
