Katelyn Royce and Joseph Gokey '19

Architectural Engineering,

Architectural egnineering students Katelyn Royce ’19 and Joseph Gokey ’19 took their design skills on the road to help improve Connecticut’s Interstate 84. Along with classmates in their Architectural Design IV Studio Intensive Track course, they recently spent five weeks producing sample designs for the “I-84 Hartford Project,” an initiative led by the Connecticut Department of Transportation.

Knowing that the I-84 project is a real proposed plan for the city of Hartford made the whole design process more exciting, especially visiting the site and visualizing how the area could be enhanced,” says Katelyn.
