Perspectus Architecture is proud to welcome our newest team member, Gwendolyn Frank! She recently graduated from Kent State University with a Master of Architecture. She joins us as an intern architect and hopes to one day be a proud pet-parent for the world’s largest (perhaps cutest?) rodent, the capybara.
We thought we would introduce her with a short Q&A to help everyone get to know her.
Where are you from originally?
I grew up in Westerville, Ohio, but have lived around different parts of Ohio.
What’s your favorite thing to do outside of work?
Exploring a new place or having a new experience is something I value greatly.
Who or what inspires you most?
Family has always been a large source of my inspiration.
What are you most excited about as you begin your career?
I am most excited to continue learning, and specifically learning in a professional setting. School and the profession offer quite different learning opportunities.
If I weren’t an architect I would be….
I never had a backup option, but I suppose it would have something to do with art and history.
What’s the coolest place you’ve ever been? Where do you want to travel to most and why?
I was fortunate to travel to Italy during school, and my most memorable moment was sitting overlooking the city from the Florence Opera. I could see my next big adventure being Barcelona to see Sagrada Familia.
Favorite TV show/movie?
Movies, I enjoy old Hollywood films and for TV I am happy when a new season of Project Runway starts.
Is there something not many people know about you?
I have an affinity for unique animals and really would love to have a capybara someday.
The age-old Cleveland question: East Side or West Side?
I live on the East Side but more often on the West Side in my spare time.
Cavs or Indians?
Indians for sure!
Dogs or Cats?
Dogs. I grew up fostering puppies for the humane society and hope to have a chance to sometime in the future.
Welcome to the team, Gwendolyn! We’re so glad to have you here!
