For her fall 2009 thesis project, alumna Jennifer Sompolski created “Coalesce,” a sustainable community center for art and design students in Chicago. Using contrasting materials, she designed the center as a place for Chicago students to share their work and have a central area to collaborate and share creative inspiration. See some of her work in the images above and below.

I wanted to share this with you as I thought it was a really cool proposal that could really help benefit students if ever actually created. Check out the video Jennifer created of her interior design thesis project

I got in touch with Jennifer, now a LEED Green Associate who currently works as a design assistant/junior designer at Torchia Associates in Chicago, to find out a little more. “I believe good design has the capability of enhancing users’ lives and can ultimately make changes for a better world,” she said. “Sustainable design and community connectivity are my main focuses.”

Thanks for sharing your work, Jennifer!
