I’m Hillary, an MArch and MLA grad with big ideas about designing to enrich biodiversity. I see architecture as landscape, and believe good design is cultivated through an exploration of a site's many scales.
These ideas were fundamental to my master's thesis project, a proposed transformation of Seattle’s century-old Ballard Locks, which won the ASLA Student Honor Award in General Design and UW Department of Architecture Thesis Prize.
My professional experience also spans different scales of the built environment. I recently got to know the inner workings of a small architecture firm as an independent contractor for Robert Hutchison Architecture. My past experience includes an internship with Mithun where I learned to navigate between the worlds of architecture and landscape architecture in practice. I have also designed at a city planning scale as part of a small multidisciplinary team through the UW Green Futures Lab.
I draw inspiration from the Pacific Northwest’s cold waters and mossy island forests. No matter how far I roam, I remain deeply tied to the ecology of my home.
