Enrique Mendoza, Architectural Designer - GKG Architecture
Enrique received a Bachelor of Architecture from The University of Wisconsin Milwaukee's School of Architecture and Urban Planning, and holds a Master of Architecture from The University of Minnesota's Graduate School of Architecture. Where he was ultimately awarded the Sullivan Family Graduate Fellowship, a fellowship that is awarded to students who show evidence of high academic achievement, demonstrate design accomplishments, and show promise in professional practice. Enrique's graduate thesis project, â€œThe Seattle Powerhouseâ€, examined the viability of a waste-to-energy facility on the edge of the historic industrial district and a nature preserve once occupied by the Duwamish people. Enrique Mendoza envisioned a healthier, more transparent, and resilient relationship between the essential systems of energy production and consumption. Enrique previously interned in the award-winning landscape architecture, urban design, and architecture firm Site Design Group based in Chicago, and currently works as an architectural designer at GKG Architecture a New York-based firm whose body of work critically examines formal and informal commodities of space in relation to its context.
