Burke is a recent graduate from Parsons School of Design’s Architectural Design program at The New School. The original Foundation Year Curriculum provided the agency and context for hand drafting and model making with a detailed level of craftsmanship. Following the Bauhaus principles of education, the program challenges the conceptual side of design.
He is highly interested in paradigm shifts within societies, heterotopias, urban agriculture typologies, and transportation strategies. His senior year was spent unifying his two most passionate interests of Food and Architecture with classes addressing Vertical Farming, Aquaponics, Community Inequities, and Food Deserts. His previous courses completed at NYU provided his senior year at Parsons with the context of Restaurant Design and Management, 21st Century Food Issues, and anthropologic case studies showcasing the interconnected symbol of food within a culture, religion, and environment.
