Maddie Smith joined NSPJ Architects in May 2022 as a Student Intern while studying for a master’s in architecture from The University of Kansas. Maddie frequently volunteers with Natural Ties in Lawrence, KS and plans to spend the fifth year of her master’s program at La Villette in Paris. Her classmates would describe her as positive, creative, and responsible.
She has always dreamt of designing homes and started her path with interior design. However, along the way, her focus changed to residential architecture. She has always enjoyed learning about design and art history.
Currently, at NSPJ, Maddie is assisting with the Drake Mixed Residential project. She can see how topics/skills that she learned in school apply to real projects. Even though Maddie has only been at NSPJ a few days, Abby has already taught her tricks in SketchUp that would have saved her a lot of time on her previous studio projects.
Maddie’s enjoys mountains over beaches and her favorite season is fall because of the weather. In her spare time, she savors apple cider in the crisp air.
