robandmelanie

This Friday, September 19th, Rob and Melanie Dower will discuss their personal journeys to establish their individual career paths, as they settled in the City of Pittsburgh.  They will discuss key moments in their career, defining projects, seizing opportunities, and the influential literature and mentors in their lives.  Rob and Melanie will share their experience balancing their family life while always striving to push themselves to the next level of their careers.  They will even touch on the struggle to have two architects attempt to renovate a home together!  Rob and Melanie look forward to being able to share the knowledge they have gained to date, and hope that it will help to inspire others to “Find the Right Fit”.

Melanie Buzgan Dower graduated from Kent State University with a Master of Architecture and Master of Urban Design in 2006. After graduation, Melanie moved to Pittsburgh and joined Rothschild Doyno Collaborative. Now an Associate, Melanie has spent her last 8 years expanding her leadership role. With a focus on workplace excellence and integrated systems, Melanie has carved her niche and found herself on a longer term trajectory in the firm. Melanie continues to balance her work-life ratio as an active mom of two, while also influencing some of the most meaningful architecture in the City of Pittsburgh.

Rob Dower graduated from Kent State University with a Master of Architecture and Certificate of Urban Design in 2006. After graduation, Rob moved to Pittsburgh and joined Strada Architecture, LLC.
