Alison Katz is bcINTERN at buildingcommunityWORKSHOP. She is interested in the intersection of public interest design work, sustainability, and politics, and wants to explore ways to use design tools within the built environment to create a more equitable society.
[bc] caught her eye because of the variety of public interest design work that is done, including built projects, as well as projects that fall into the outreach or research category. Because of this, she feels that the organization does a really good job in working within communities to enact change and empower the people. This is the type of work she wants to do in the long run and she is excited to learn more about the process this summer in Houston.
Alison is from Saratoga Springs, NY. She is currently pursuing a Bachelor of Architecture from Carnegie Mellon University as part of the class of 2020.
