Who or what inspires you professionally?

People. There is a new story behind every face; we as designers have the opportunity to sculpt spaces that emotionally impact that story.

HANNAH SCHAFERS

Bio:

Hannah Schafers, Associate AIA, graduated with a Master of Architecture from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2020. As a previous graduate teaching assistant and previous adjunct studio faculty member at the UNL College of Architecture, Hannah has a deep passion for learning from and mentoring young designers within the profession.

How did you first learn about architecture and when did you decide that built environment profession was an area of interest for you?

My first memories of architecture date back to early childhood when I would spend countless hours recreating old blueprints in my grandpa’s loft. As an architect himself, he is my greatest inspiration and I hold our shared passion of design dear.

What do you do?

Currently, I am an architectural designer at Clark and Enersen in Lincoln, NE and am pursing licensure.

What excites you in the work you do?

I love how every day is something new; new people, new projects, new challenges, new ideas.

Who or what inspires you professionally?

People. There is a new story behind every face; we as designers have the opportunity to sculpt spaces that emotionally impact that story.

What is your proudest professional accomplishment or achievement?

Recently, I have been working on projects in small, rural communities. To me, the most rewarding aspect is getting to know the people in the community and seeing the impact your work has on them.
