For Melanie, good design is socially responsible—it takes anthropology, sociology, and psychology into account. “There’s no doubt architecture is a form of art,” she says. “But it’s also about how we live and work, and how we create environments to do that efficiently.” One of her favorite things about Curran is the opportunity to work on projects of all types at all stages. Outside the office, Melanie enjoys spending time with her husband and daughter. “They mean everything to me,” she says.
