Alessandra D’Alessio is a graduate student at Parsons School of Design in New

York City, completing her MFA in Interior design. From a very young age, Alessandra has always found herself captivated and immersed in the world of art.

The foundation of Alessandra’s creative practice is about testing the boundary

between art and design. Her process is a reflection of her passions and interests

through various design disciplines, with a strong emphasis on sketching and hand

drafting. Each project begins by developing a compelling concept, followed by

detailed research and exploration through various phases of ideation. Alessandra

enjoys bringing her ideas to life through multiple methods of fabrication. Her work

allows her to explore possibilities across multiple platforms such as digital 3D

modeling, physical model making, woodworking and hand drawing.

Alessandra has worked alongside multiple professors at Parsons School of Design

as a Teaching Assistant and Research Assistant at Graduate, Undergraduate, and

Associate Degree levels. Her experience has also lead her to work at a prestigious

architecture firm in Toronto and alongside an architect in New York City.

Here is a small glimpse of her creative practice, a collection of academic and independent projects.
