Modifications and changes related to the original building designs and construction methodologies for this senior thesis project are solely the interpretation of Christopher Ankeny. Changes and discrepancies in no way imply that the original design contained errors or was flawed. Differing assumptions, code references, requirements, and methodologies have been incorporated into this thesis project; therefore, investigation results may vary from the original design.”


Logan Brown is currently in his fifth year at The Pennsylvania State University.  He will graduate in May with a Bachelor's of Architectural Engineering, focusing in Lighting and Electrical design, as well as with a minor in Architectural Studies.

Logan grew up on the outskirts of Allentown, Pennsylvania with a passion for Lego’s and Frank Lloyd Wright.  Throughout high school Logan was heart set on being an architect, but realized he excelled in Mathematics and solving problems.  It wasn’t until he met Moses Ling on a visit to Penn State that he fell in love with Architectural Engineering and knew it was the perfect fit for his gift of problem solving and creative design.  

Logan spent last summer working in Washington, D.C. for Ellerbe Becket as an electrical engineering intern.  EB is a large, international firm consisting of architects, structural engineers and all the MEP disciplines.  He had the opportunity to work closely with the engineers and designers for the office’s first 3D-Revit model and construction documents.  It was an experience that made all the long days and sleepless nights in the 308 Sackett computer lab worth every minute.

Apart from his studies, Logan is a member of the Illumination Engineering Society (IES) and participates actively in intramural athletics.  He was able to study abroad last summer in Rome, Italy with a group of fellow AEs who have grown into his closest friends and colleagues over the 2 month long journey through a foreign country.

The Capstone Project Electronic Portfolio (CPEP) is a web‐based project and information center. It contains material produced for a year‐long Senior Thesis class. Its purpose, in addition to providing central storage of individual assignments, is to foster communication and collaboration between student, faculty consultant, course instructors, and industry consultants. This website is dedicated to the research and analysis conducted via guidelines provided by the Department of Architectural Engineering.
