Bachelors of Architecture 2012
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
My name is Andy Fini. I am a recent college graduate with a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York. Through my design studios and professional electives, I have become especially proficient in rendering and computer modeling, with rendering as one of my best skills. As part of my education, I participated in a semester-long study abroad program in Torino and Rome, Italy. I had the opportunity to study centuries of architectural masterpieces and styles of architecture as well as work with Italian architecture students in a parametric design-based workshop.
I am interested in creating architecture that affects one's mood, feelings, or behavior in the space. I would like to design spaces that create different emotional environments which allow architecture to be a form of art and expression, creating atmospheres that range from awe and wonder to calm and tranquil. I often focus on the design of interior spaces of the building, how they work together, and the interaction and juxtaposition of spaces in general. I am meticulous in my designs, focusing on the details to assure that all elements function together cohesively.
