James Freeze

Tasked with designing a building for a city in Iraq, junior James Freeze and his classmates found that using summer wind for ventilation posed a challenge. “The summer winds are not cooling at all. It’s like a blow dryer in your face,” says Freeze. He would know. He spent four years in the U.S. Army, including time in Iraq. “In Iraq I saw that the world is broken. As an architect, I can do my part to fix it — one building at a time.”
