Kate Medin is a designer who has a passion for working with community-oriented + humanitarian-based projects. She has a background working in architecture, construction and interiors; recently receiving her Masters in Architecture from the University of Kansas after completing her bachelors in Environmental Design. She grew up in what she calls “a Habitat family” volunteering for various projects via Habitat for Humanity and overseas work through Volunteers in Mission starting at the age of fourteen. She recently has been involved with the not-for-profit group Studio 804 designing + building a net zero research facility for alternative fuels. Though she is quite familiar with the traditional design rhetoric she is focusing her talents on pushing the field of design towards more sustainable / efficient solutions that can improve our landscape on a local and global scale. She also studied abroad in Japan, South Korea and China in an effort to learn how rapid growth can change ancient societies and how these two forces fuse together to create something entirely new + unique. She is incredibly excited to come work with bcWORKSHOP and eager to jump on board to continue the momentum while striving to enhance the community.
