Alumni Spotlight

“The DAS studio encourages collaboration between building science and architecture students. Since we all come from diverse academic backgrounds, we approach the same problems differently, which results in more innovative solutions. The open-conversation environment also allows us to develop lasting professional relationships and friendships."
