Delia Gott is a Bachelor of Architecture candidate at the BAC. Originally from Cluj Napoca, Romania, she says it's similar to Boston because "things are in constant change, but somehow always stay the same." Growing up she was exposed to both science and art due to her paretns both being educators- her Mom is also a very talented artist. She went on to study Architecture in Bucharest, Romania. When she moved to the United States she attended Delaware Technical and Community College where she received her Associate's Degree (Summa Cum Laude) in Architectural Engineering.
Delia feels that being a designer is not only a privilege but also requires a responsibility to recreate a better society. She says that, "as designers we have the power to address issues and to correct them, whether they are aesthetic, functional, or civic." Romania was a nation under brutal regime for almost half a century, and having family members who fought for their beliefs, the issues of social justice, personal freedom and democracy are all very important to her and the work she does.
She has loved every single studio that she has taken at the BAC, due to the wonderful instructors who are role models and dedicate themselves to student growth. If she had to name the class that influenced her most, it was her Environmental Psychology course, where she says she found answers to many of her questions and solidified her direction as a designer.
Delia is the Secretary for the BAC NOMAS (National Organization of Minority Architecture Students) Chapter, a position she has held since September 2011. She was very proud to be part of the team representing the BAC at the 2011 NOMA National Conference, where they placed third nationally in the Student Design Competition.
