Meet Noah Wooding-Gonzalez
Noah Joined the Ambassador team this Summer, and has been pivatol with our re-branding initiatives.
Noah Gonzalez-Wooding was raised in South Texas along the border with Mexico. While contemplating his major, Noah decided to investigate architecture through the Syracuse University summer architecture program in his junior year of high school. Having always craved a creative outlet he fell in love with the field, and during his first year at SU continued to delve into design, form, program and their relationship to building space.
Constantly enveloped in form at studio, drawings that broke down concepts in models were what caught his attention the most; Soon after, abstraction became a common theme among his projects. During his second year (2016) he returned to his home college (UTRGV) to focus on a minor in Fine Arts, specializing in hybrid 2-D/3-D drawings, this is where he progressed his ideas in representation while still incorporating elements and dichotomies of architecture. Clashing opposing concepts, abstracting layouts, solid/void relationships, layering shape and form, and contrasting line-work were the foundation of his work.
