About

Hello! My name is Erin and I am a Junior at Kutztown University of Pennsylvania where I am studying Elementary Education with a focus on pre-school to fourth grade. Previously, I studied at Northampton Community College, concluding in receiving an Associates Degree in Architectural Design. I hope to eventually become an Elementary school teacher and would love if I am able to keep Architecture in my life. I spend a lot of time at my local dance studio taking classes in tap, jazz, hip-hop, ballet, and modern. I also assist with the younger dance classes at the studio. When I’m not at dance, I love to read, play video games, and go for walks with my dogs. For the next few months, I am going to be studying abroad at the University of Aberdeen in Scotland. While here, I intend to do a lot of exploring, both of Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire. Through my exploration, I am going to take note of architectural works of interest and post about my findings.

Though it is not necessarily a structure, landscape design is still a form of architecture.  For one to fully create a design, one must be able to understand and work the land as well.  Because of this, this post will focus on Seaton Park, which is a… More

Aberdeen and Stonehaven Beach Front and Harbor

Erin M. April 2, 2014

The Aberdeen beachfront and harbor feel disconnected from the rest of the city. It is only a short walk down from Union Street, but it still feels as though it is from a completely different city. The majority of the architecture directly around the area… More

St. Machar’s Cathedral

Erin M. March 30, 2014

Situated just outside of Seaton Park, a few minutes walk from Aberdeen Universities’ campus is St. Machar’s Cathedral. Though the exterior is stunning most intriguing part of this structure, is the interior. The whole interior is very ornate and detailed… More
