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.
