Talia Moretti is currently a Master of Architecture student at Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning at the University of Michigan. In 2021, she had the opportunity to work with an interdisciplinary team as a Dow Sustainability Fellow. Our team proposed manure management strategies for an urban youth equestrian center in downtown Detroit. We prioritized the mitigation of environmental impacts and neighborhood concerns.

Talia’s work has emphasized appreciation of the natural environment before designing any built additions to it. Environmental justice, social equity, and specific context are of equal importance in her approach to design. To Talia, the most environmentally sustainable buildings are the ones that already exist. Within sustainable design, she is passionate about passive building design, building reuse, and deconstruction. She hopes to become a licensed architect and Passive House Certified Designer in the future.

She previously completed an interdisciplinary Bachelor of Arts & Science at McMaster University, culminating with a thesis evaluating climate policy in California and Texas. Prior to beginning her graduate education, Talia completed an introductory architecture program, IN[ARCH], at the University of California, Berkeley.

Outside of architecture, Talia spends her time outdoors, with friends, doing yoga, and baking.
