A New Way of Thinking
APRIL 12, 2019 | CHICAGO, IL—
The Kompas Fellowship is a rare opportunity for recent college graduates to gain hands-on professional experience before moving on to graduate school. Boasting an impressive portfolio and innovative idea, Angel Tang (University of Michigan, ’19) has been selected as the 2019-2020 Fellow. Starting this summer, she will spend 80% of her time assisting the MA team with real-life projects and 20% of her time exploring an independent research venture.
“I’m excited to join Myefski Architects as a Kompas Fellow,” expressed Tang. “I eagerly look forward to receiving feedback and guidance from design professionals on the MA team.”
With a background in cognitive science paired with a degree in architecture, Angel’s innovative idea will explore the creation of multisensory environments, where she will research architectural design that is vision loss-friendly by analyzing the built environment of Chicago.
"We were thoroughly impressed with the quality of talent displayed by applicants this year, which really speaks to how successful the program, now in its fifth year, has become," said John Myefski, Kompas Fellowship founder. "We're looking forward to Angel contributing her uniquely impressive skillset to the MA team."
