Miniarcs are my modern architectural design sets staged and built to the scale of 1 inch equals 1 foot.

Vanessa's Miniarcs were featured in ReadyMade Magazine
ReadyMade Magazine featured my Miniarcs.

Architectural History was my college major at Smith College. I was a summer apprentice at two architectural firms: Skidmore Owings & Merrill and Robert A.M. Stern Architects. I learned how to construct architectural models using methods: measuring, cutting and glueing by hand, and assembling CAD laser cut models.  I created Miniarcs while I was working in San Francisco.

My first architectural model, The Halpern House, built for Robert A.M. Stern Architects
