As her third-year classmates set off for study abroad experiences in China India and Rome Jessica Bristow headed to her semester abroad at the Center for Architecture Science and Ecology CASE in New York City. I was interested in sustainability and the flyer for CASE talked about built ecology said Bristow now an architectural designer with Guerin Glass in Brooklyn. The built ecology is a hybrid of engineering science and ecology in design. So youre not just putting solar panels on the roof of a building youre putting solar cells into the faade of a building and creating efficiency on multiple levels. Id never seen that before. Bristows semester at CASEwhich included assisting graduate students as well as taking a variety of contemporary classes that introduced her to scientific research on applicable topics parametric modeling a design studio and an urban studies courseopened her eyes to a more integrated approach to design. Abroad at Home JESSICA BRISTOW 12 CASE helped me understand systems and how they tie into the larger design and I see that in my thesis and the approach I took in the next two years. I learned to balance multiple approaches and produce a single synthesized design. sustainability 14
