Gabriella Nowak speaks with Gabriella Bermea, AIA, NCARB, NOMA, Associate Design Architect at VLK Architects in Austin, Texas. Recognized by the AIA Austin with a 2023 Emerging Professionals Award, and currently nominated for an Austin Under 40 Award, Gabby is an inspiring guest to wrap up season 8 of A Student’s Perspective. Gabby “has a passion for philanthropy, education, and advocacy, with an architectural specialization is in the K-12 sector, with a focus on long range facility planning, design, and construction of educational institutions. Gabriella is an advocate for public education students, currently serving as a board member for her local education foundation and as the SchoolsNEXT Regional Coordinator for the Association for Learning Environments (A4LE), focused on creating the ‘School of the Future’ as designed by partnering K-12 schools. A champion for bringing new voices to the profession, she serves as the Director of Student Recruitment with ACE Mentor Program of Austin and is the Communications Director for the Young Architects Forum and Editor-in-Chief of Connection Magazine. This overlap of mentorship, advocacy, and service influenced her to further her knowledge and skills in architecture, philanthropic service, and K-12 design.”
We are grateful to Gabby for taking time to speak with us and we are sure that this conversation will resonate with young designers and students contemplating their role in design.
