A Summer of Submittals and Survey
Qianna Nelson begins her fourth year in the architecture program at Tuskegee University soon, but this summer she was a KM intern, a big change from the classroom/studio setting, she said.  In the office Qianna assisted with the submittal review process.  Afternoons often meant grabbing the tape measure and heading out for survey work at two project sites.  Qianna said that seeing what architects do at work will make a difference in how she thinks about studio projects once she is back at school.  Qianna is from Philadelphia and a graduate of the Science Leadership Academy.
