Chelsea Alexander

VABE students to showcase third-year projects tonight

Chelsea Alexander was only 15 when she had her first brush with real architecture. Her father was building a new home in Toronto’s Yonge and Eglington neighbourhood, and gave her the chance for some input on the plans, soliciting her opinion on the location of a bathroom and some of the bedrooms.

“I was so excited,” she said. “I’ve always been interested in art, and I had been drawing floor plans ever since I was a little kid, so I was thrilled for the opportunity.”
