Bridgette Mekkelsen

A Pittsburgh native, Bridgette received her Associates in Architecture from Valencia College in the spring of 2015. She is majoring in Architectural Studies at the University of Pittsburgh and expects to graduate in Spring 2017.  Bridgette has always been interested in the fields of art and design and found her niche when taking design classes at Valencia. With a great concern for the environment, she began to do independent research on sustainable design. The combination of environmental awareness and design joined two concerns that Bridgette found to be most important. Being in Design III and tackling environmental issues in a studio setting has been an eye opening and valuable learning experience. She plans on taking her LEED Green Associate test within the next year at the university. Upon graduation, Bridgette plans on going to grad school to fulfill her Masters in Architecture and eventually become a licensed architect. At HAAARCH!!!  Bridgette will be presenting work from her Design Studio III course, involving climate analysis and designs of residential units that incorporate passive design strategies and sustainable materials.
