Julie Shapiro is a Master of Landscape Architecture candidate at the BAC. She received a Bachelor's degree in Biology from Oberlin College in 2009. After three years of travel and work in agriculture and horticulture, Julie found her way to the field of landscape architecture, and she feels like it's a perfect fit!
Julie is a student member of the American Society of Landscape Architects. As the incoming secretary of SASLA (Student American Society of Landscape Architects) (2013-2014), she looks forward to organizing student events and strengthening the Landscape Architecture department.
Julie participated in the BAC's 2013 study-abroad program in Rome, where she focused on the landscape history of the city's Testaccio neighborhood.
Her favorite experiences at the BAC include freehand drawing with Michael Daniels, Design Principles with Michael Fiorillo, and the landscape architecture analysis studio with Aidan Acker. Julie recently enjoyed facilitating a design workshop for Boston high school students in the ArtScience Prize program, and she hopes to continue working with young designers.
