AO INTERN THE FIRST

In addition to turning 2, Adaptive Operations has reached another important milestone in hiring its first intern!

Originally from Houston, Texas, Paris Bezanis is a rising fourth year at the University of Chicago, studying Russian Eastern European Studies and Visual Art. His art practice explores sculpture and collage, and is grounded in found and re-used building materials. Other creative work includes scenic design for the University Theatre Company, as well as furniture design and fabrication. Paris has had a long interest in architecture and the built space, and is interested in pursuing further architecture education in the future.

Paris is helping out in a number of ways with lots of hands-on projects that are floating around, and will hopefully be learning a lot about what a tiny alternative architecture/design/art practice looks like on a day to day basis.
