PIVOT Architecture is extremely excited to announce that Evon Calabrese, a MARCH candidate at the UO, will be the 2018 PIVOT Fellow.
Evon will explore the intersection of architecture, psychology, and sociology and how those disciplines can be used with evidence-based design to improve productivity, ease anxiety, and promote wellness in spaces. She plans to investigate how evidence-based design can especially improve affordable housing complexes, educational, and institutional facilities like prisons and eldercare.
Evon holds a bachelors of fine art degree from the Massachusetts College of Design and is now pursuing a master’s degree in architecture at the University of Oregon. She worked for several years at other architecture firms including a stint in Kenya. After receiving her master’s degree she plans to pursue a Ph.D.
She will join PIVOT in early July after a study abroad in Vicenza, Italy.
