PAMELA DA GRACA, ASSOCIATE AIA

Pamela joined The Arkitex Studio in July 2010. She earned a Bachelor of Environmental Design (magna cum laude), with an English minor, from Texas A&M University in 2007 and continued her studies there to earn a Master of Architecture in 2009, with graduate certificates in both Historic Preservation and Sustainable Urbanism.

After graduating, she traveled to Belize with Texas A&M’s Center for Heritage Conservation (CHC) to work on the Blue Creek archaeological dig site and document Mayan ruins. She then worked for the CHC to complete the HABS (Historic American Building Survey) documentation of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, Bryan, Texas. This project received Honorable Mention in the 2010 Peterson Prize Awards.

Pamela is a member of AIA Brazos and volunteers her time with the Emerging Professionals Committee. She helped create and organize the committee’s primary fund-raiser and philanthropy, Brazos Bark & Build: A Sustainable Dog House Competition; and co-chaired the event in 2012. She also serves as editor for the AIA Brazos newsletter, Archivoltum, and is a member of the Texas Society of Architects’ Historic Resources Committee.
