Beatrice Ardila is a Master of Architecture candidate at the BAC. Through the Distance Masters of Architecture program, Beatrice studies at the BAC from Paris, Texas where she lives and works for Harrison, Walker & Harper.
Prior to studying at the BAC, Beatrice received a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the Universidad Nacional Experimental del Táchira (UNET) in San Cristóbal, Venezuela. Beatrice is a licensed and registered architect in Venezuela and has previous professional experience as a supporting architect and designer for multiple firms in Venezuela, including: Sobrespacios Arquitectos, Corporación Latino, and Constructora Geralaca.
Beatrice decided to pursue a Master's Degree in Architecture at the BAC because it afforded her the unique opportunity to study from Paris, TX and continue her professional work simultaneously. "It is great to be able to apply new knowledge from the program directly into my projects and presentations at work," Beatrice described.
Beatrice has done work on installations as part of her Thesis project and built and installed one in Paris, TX in the winter of 2014. The installation received attention throughout the town and was featured in the local paper. As a result, Bea was approached by Harrison, Walker & Harper and offered a position.
