ARCHITECTURE

After taking an introductory course for Architecture studio, Elenai realized that her interests and passion, for both creative and analytical work, would be strengthened and molded with the heavily theory and design based, pre-professional Architecture program. Taking studio courses in both Architecture and Visual Arts, as well as courses in Art and Architecture History, helped her foster a cross-disciplinary approach, that embraced creativity and innovation, to Architecture.

In her final year of undergraduate studies, Elenai completed a year long Architecture Thesis Project - during which she researched Downtown Las Vegas, and the influences of tourism and private development on it's built environment, and local community.
