Aleeya began working with ASR as a senior international urban studies student at NYU. Her program’s limited exposure to design and concept development made it hard for her to imagine herself being competitive enough to attend any of the top architecture programs. After joining ASR, and through a lot of hard work, she managed to overcome some very tough obstacles, and gain admission to Schools like Pratt, RISD and Columbia GSAPP. She ended up deciding to go to Columbia.

Rollin was already a student at Bennington college, when he decided to transfer to a B.Arch. program to study architecture. He worked with us in the Fall of 2017. We helped Rollin develop an initial differentiation strategy based on his multifaceted background, which brought lots of areas together and made sense of them by collaging their essences. Rollin’s Portfolio became a collage of stories of people he admired, like Miles Davis, Piranesi, Franz Kafka and others. He was accepted to almost all schools he appied to, including Pratt, RISD and Cooper Union. He chose to attend Cooper Union.
