Alexandr Polzin is an interdisciplinary artist and designer interested in the intersections of Art, Architecture, Design and Urbanism. He holds a professional degree in Architecture from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. His interest in thoughtfully designed public space was sparked during a year spent in the Architecture Design Studio at DIS in Copenhagen, Denmark.
He has been collaborating with Vicki Scuri Siteworks since 2009. During this time, he has worked on numerous projects and is involved in the daily operations of the studio. In the office, he specializes in digital design and his scope includes schematic design, conceptual development, design development, final design, and the integration of designs into contract documents. In 2013, both he and Vicki Scuri earned Certificates in Digital Design and Fabrication from the University of Washington. He enjoys applying the tools and techniques learned in this course to strengthen and simplify the design process. The projects developed following this course benefit greatly from the application of these techniques and they have expanded the nature of the studio’s work.
Alexandr’s further work at Vicki Scuri SiteWorks includes research, plan writing, compiling applications, social media and online content, drafting newsletters, creating imagery, developing presentations, and many other tasks necessary to help run the office. Projects he has contributed to include: 375 East and West Outer Loop, Airway Gateway, Arlington Boulevard, Aurora Avenue North Improvements Project “Bright Dawn”, Capital Boulevard Bridges, East Kellogg Improvement Projects I & II, Glenn Muldoon, Hagerstown Cultural Trail Railroad Switch Fencing, I-244 Route 66 Pedestrian Bridge, Kinston SmART Vision Plan, Kinston Trash Trucks, Macleod Trail & 162nd Avenue SE Interchange, MEDIC “Response”, Merriweather Parking Garage “Rainbow Sunset”, New Carrollton “Branching Out” Purple Line, Schantz Avenue Bridge, South Bellevue Station, WAM Wind Screens, and many proposals.
