Alyssa’s goal is to produce better design for our clients. With her background in architecture and focus on interdisciplinary design, she develops computational solutions that enhance practitioner design processes across Stantec. A key component of her role is to research and prototype workflows that make use of emerging technologies in the architecture and engineering spaces.
One opportunity for this work was on the sun shading system for the Austin Oaks redevelopment. On this project, Alyssa and her team used a collaborative, data-rich, web-based platform that reported the status of a parametric model. They were able to leverage data and generative design to more effectively explore alternate design options for the system.
If she isn’t at work, Alyssa might be exploring the city and the outdoors, usually through urban excursions or hikes. She’s also active in her local arts community, either programming visual art content or creating interactive art installations for music and arts festivals in British Columbia and Alberta.
