09 Jun Sasha Bachier
Hello everyone, my name is Sasha Bachier and I am a recent graduate from the University of Massachusetts Amherst earning a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Architecture, minoring in Art History and Building, Construction, and Technology. Currently, I am perusing a Masters in Architecture at Wentworth Institute of Technology, with an expected graduation of April 2016. Following graduate school, I plan on pursuing my NCARB registration and LEED accreditation. I aspire to establish an architectural firm that implement sustainable practices, which will play a role in shaping the built environment and will leave a footprint behind for the next generation of conservation stewards who share similar interests. Apart from my academic and professional involvement within the field of architecture, I have spent time developing skills in other areas of art and design such as painting, drawing, and photography. All the while, maintaining an active lifestyle along with a passion for traveling and seeking for different sources of studio inspiration by embracing other cultures around the world. I have studied abroad in Florence, Italy in 2013 and I am looking forward to my travel studio in Rome, Italy during the Fall semester of 2015. This summer, I will be interning for the Hispanic Access Foundation who will be collaborating with the Olmsted Center for Landscape Preservation in Boston, Ma. This is my second summer interning for OCLP and I am excited to be back. During my 10-week summer internship, I will be assisting with a cultural landscape inventory for the Frederick Law Olmsted National Historic Site in Brookline, MA and preparing treatment guidelines for Governors Island National Monument in New York Harbor. In addition, I will also raise awareness about National Parks and strive towards educating others about advancing employment and community engagement opportunities for the Latino population, especially at the National Park Service. I am looking forward to what this summer has in store for me and learning about the other interns experiences through the blog.
