Elementary School Schematic Design Proposal, Arlington
Team: Thomas Stuart, Kelsey Benitez, Sarah Pitsner, Prerana Kamat
Based on the needs of the Elementary school students and parents, we designed a space that encompasses a community-enriching atmosphere, that engages the outdoors and prioritizes students. We proposed a design that will employ all senses of learning and formally put the library at the core of the school to have a sense of place during the school day.
Within our design
- Incorporating the outdoors
- Having the mindset of using natural materials and textures
- Engaging students throughout the day
- Making the students feel comfortable
- Incorporating flexible spaces
- Taking into consideration certain spaces due to acoustics

Hive - The future of disaster relief
Team: Javier Rodriguez, Rachel Guo, Sabrina Bae, Prerana Kamat
A network of deployable healthcare modules tasked with providing relief to communities affected by future disasters. The module offers a solution to maximize hospital capacity, reduce response times, and provide adequate medical accessibility. This new network challenges the systems we know today with the technology we are adopting for tomorrow. With Hive, more efficient and agile solutions to disaster relief and management can be unearthed, and we can return our sights to the sky.
