2021 Preservation Intern
All of those interests combined nicely for the work I did at Fallingwater. It was my dream job.
An architectural design major and art history minor, Emma plans to pursue a master’s degree in structural engineering. Under the supervision of Scott Perkins, she worked with structural engineer John Matteo to help his firm document current Fallingwater preservation projects such as bridge restoration and bolster repair. She researched two elements at Fallingwater that aren’t visible today – the original bridge and a canopy column. Emma enjoys creating structures to test her engineering acumen and spending time with her dog, Jack.
