Claire Antrassian is our Fellow at Quinn Evans Architects. Claire obtained her Master’s in Architecture from the University of Detroit Mercy School of Architecture. At QEA, Claire is on a team with 2016-2017 alumni Fellow, Lauren Strauss. Here is what Lauren had to say about Claire:

“Claire is a great addition to QEA.  She brings her excitement and energy into every project at hand.  As a part of the Michigan Central Station team, her background and design skills are great assets to this iconic building.  She loves (sharing about) her work and current projects in Challenge Detroit and is highly involved in growing the future profession as an Alumni of UDM. “

Claire has fully embraced being a Fellow and has this to say about her experience so far:

“As a Challenge Detroit Fellow, I am living in a cute little duplex in Detroit’s Woodbridge neighborhood, working on a dream project at Quinn Evans Architects in their Detroit office, playing in the city with old and new friends, giving and leading in the City of Detroit with a group of 26 other fellows contributing intellectually and through hands-on service with local non-profits and organizations.”
