Master of Architecture, Tulane University
Joined studioWTA in 2016
Evan is a native of Fletcher, Vermont, growing up on a dirt road off a dirt road in the woods. His first architectural project was designing a sugar house for making maple syrup on his family’s land when he was 15 years old. He went on to major in both Architecture and Studio Art at Hobart & William Smith Colleges in upstate New York. In his junior year he traveled abroad for a semester to Copenhagen; while there, he received a grant to study Danish and Spanish architecture, specifically focused on coastal communities. After graduation he spent a full year abroad, this time working as an intern for architecture firms in Vienna, Austria, and Pisa, Italy.
He returned to the states and enrolled at the Tulane University School of Architecture and received his Master’s Degree in 2014. He received the Thomas J. Lupo award for Urban Studies, as well as the Ogden 8 award for his thesis work pertaining to coastal development patterns and restoration on the Gulf Coast. His thesis project was subsequently displayed in the Ogden Museum with a select group of other students’ works.
Prior to joining studioWTA, Evan worked for a firm in Pensacola, Florida, that specialized in commercial and religious projects. While enjoying the sun and sand during the weekends, he also interned with the Marine Resource Department of Escambia County, assisting in a project on artificial reef development. He joined studioWTA in the Spring of 2016, where he has enjoyed working alongside a talented team of designers and architects.
When not at studioWTA, Evan is likely to be found engaging in one of his other passions. He loves to cook, build furniture, and kayak the bayous around New Orleans. He misses snow and skiing.
