Shelby Orr

Architectural Intern
Bachelor of Science, Architectural Studies
Southern Illinois University

Shelby is passionate about sustainability and discovering how good design changes behavior and improves lives. Her dream is to design buildings for communities and missionaries in developing countries that are completely self-sufficient and sustainable. She also believes it is important for them to be constructed from the region’s local resources while the design builds upon the historic culture of the area, and pulls the community into the modern world.

Shelby enjoys using her design skills to create anything, from star projectors to board games, with a laser cutter. She spends her free time captivated by the latest book, shooting with her longbow, or going on adventures to hike, rock climb, kayak, or camp. She hopes to fulfill her dream of traveling the world while she is in graduate school.
