Sandra Oh Boun
Lead Project Architect
I am currently a Master’s of Architecture student in my final year and will be graduating this fall. I am currently working on my thesis that focuses on bringing awareness around the immigrant community in detention facilities. The analysis/thesis highlights current design conditions, and how negative design choices affect its users and the environment. Additionally, it focuses on designing alternative housing that utilizes sustainable design to better the health of the user and environment. My experience with Solar Decathlon as an architecture student has taught me many invaluable lessons in design, project management, collaboration with other disciplines, construction and community. The Solar Decathlon experience has further pushed my interest in working in the sustainability field and social justice projects. Upon graduation I plan to stay and work in the D.C area and become a licensed architect.
