Evelyn X. EhgotzDesigner
Deep thinker, graphics wiz, and Midwesterner thriving on the East Coast.
After completing her undergraduate degree, Evelyn moved from Michigan to Providence for graduate school, and fortunate for us, she liked the East Coast enough that she decided to stay. In 2021, she was awarded the United in Design Scholarship, and during her internship, she researched design strategies for supportive housing; work that culminated in the report Supportive Housing for Adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Since joining the Union team full-time, Evelyn has been a part of a variety of projects, from city design guidelines to duplex housing. She is especially fond of rendering and graphics work but is excited to learn and be involved in all phases of design projects.
While in graduate school, Evelyn did her thesis project on the concept of techno-Orientalism in film and media urbanscapes and its impact on Asian American communities. She worked as a peer tutor at the Center for Arts and Language and as a Research Assistant on “Here There Be Dragons,” a podcast on cities, identity, and the concept of safety. When not at work, Evelyn enjoys hanging out with her cat, Baby, finding fun ways to stay active, and exploring New England. She tries her best to follow her favorite dad-ism “if you’re going to do something, do it right.”
Evelyn graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Architecture, summa cum laude, from Lawrence Technological University and a Master of Architecture from the Rhode Island School of Design.
