Meet the Team

Emma Schrantz

Public Information Officer

My participation with Solar Decathlon was unexpected in many ways. While I am an architectural designer by trade, my responsibilities with the team allowed me to apply past experience with identity (brand) design and communications outlets. Through work with the Client Relations team, I’ve also become more aware of the social and design considerations through conversations with the Nanticoke Indian Tribe. These cultural considerations tie heavily into the work I do as a Masters of Architecture and Historic Preservation student. I want to tie my experience with sustainability as well as logo and brand design into my thesis work, and upon graduation I would like to pursue my architecture license. Ultimately, I would like to work on adaptive-reuse projects around the country, incorporating sustainability measures into designs, which will ensure the continued respect and survival of our country’s historic buildings and communities.
