My name is Andrea Arias! I am an Aspiring Architect. My goal is to help design the sustainable cities of tomorrow, build in outer space & help people be successful.
I am an Aspiring Architect. There are plenty of subjects to be passionate about within this field – mine encompass sustainability, affordability, and innovation. With this blog, I aim to catalog all my pursuits.
I am currently in my last year of my Masters of Architecture at the University of Colorado, Denver Campus. The focus of my degree has been learning about business practices, equitable city planning, and historic preservation. While doing my Master’s Degree I am a full-time employee at E.A. Bonelli, a nationally acclaimed firm specializing in the food & beverage industry. While in this position, I have been part of teams that engage in master planning & construction documentation for facilities in the dairy, pharmaceutical, pet food, and vertical farming industries.
Previously, I had worked for almost three years at a local, small firm called NEO Studio. During my time at NEO, I participated in client interactions, design phase, drafting permit sets and construction sets, interior design, and construction administration. I have direct experience with Town homes, Apartments, Multi-Family Developments, Duplexes, Single-Family Residence, Custom Residential, Adaptive Reuse, Office Remodel, Coffee Shop Design, and Hospitality Projects located in Mountainous Areas.
My collective experience has resulted in 98% completion of AXP hours.
Through this blog, I wish to catalog my academic and professional work, my research, and my observations through my journey as an aspiring architect. I encourage my readers to comment on my posts or send messages directly through the Contact Me Portal.
