FAIRBANKS, Alaska – Bettisworth North Architects & Planners Inc. welcomes back lifelong Alaskan Kluane Weibel to the Fairbanks office as a summer intern.
As an undergraduate student in architecture, Weibel spent six weeks in Rome participating in a design studio that emphasized thoughtful design and the values of building inhabitants. Currently, she is completing her final year of a Master’s degree in Architecture at Montana State University in which her thesis proposes developing a multi-generational residential housing option for northern Alaskan villages.
Just prior to returning as an intern this summer, she joined a group of volunteers for six weeks on a trip that combined her loves of architecture and clay. Their mission was to design and build a trash incinerator for a small village in Morocco that will alleviate the village’s serious problem of refuse accumulation.
