Madison’s passion lies at the crux of architecture and urban design. She approaches every design with the intention of making a positive contribution to the local community through Placemaking strategies and a rigorous attention to detail. Madison believes that architecture can extend beyond a structure’s physicality to the socio-psychological and be transformative in the lives of others.
Once a Pheasant in 2015 as an architectural intern, Madison returned to Overland as an Urban Designer. In the two years since her tenure in San Antonio, she was an editor’s assistant at PRAXIS, an architectural journal; worked at a firm in Portland, OR; facilitated a 6-week study-abroad seminar in Italy on “Embodied Time in Architecture and Urbanism”; volunteered her design skillset to a secondary school in rural Kenya; and graduated from Northeastern University in Boston, MA. Madison received the Alpha Rho Chi Award for professional promise, along with various other university awards for her on-going commitment to the service of others.
Madison hypothesizes that the best way to get to know a place is to get lost and explore the culture through the people you meet, the food you eat, and the hidden nooks you discover. When she’s not out and about, she’s at home cooking up a delicious meal, making a killer mojito, or snuggled up reading with her rescue pup.
