Design Intern


Over the course of 4 months I worked on the landscape design around the National Museum of American History in Washington D.C.  To help raise funding for over 1 million dollars worth of construction, I rendered eight designs for three primary locations.  These included meditation gardens, re-location of a Calder sculpture, and a proposed dining area.  The images are being used to fund these three projects.
