Architecture is about making an impact on the future of our cities. Aeron believes that all architects are an integral part of that, whether they’re working on buildings, infrastructure, public art, or even social policy—each is intricately connected. It’s worth it to try and see the big picture.
Recently, Aeron worked on Troy Boston, a 380-unit apartment building in downtown Boston. The goal? Deliver sustainable urban living solutions through design. It was a project that let her engage in the challenge of architecture—solving a lot of different problems with an open mind.
One problem that she’s set her sights on recently is the question of living small in urban spaces. With the WHAT’S IN housing research initiative, Aeron and her team are researching and testing new models for urban housing—as small as 450SF a home. When she’s not working, you can find her teaching at Roger Williams University where she’s been a design studio professor for the past two years.
