Kevin R. Mokos, a 2007 graduate of Londonderry High School and the son of Laura Renfer and Joe Mokos, graduated from the Pennsylvania State University on May 5, 2012 with a bachelor’s degree in landscape architecture.
While pursuing his degree, Mokos participated in a range of studio projects including designing a campus environmental center, identifying lands to protect for a local conservancy, and creating designs for new towns and urban revitalization. He also received an ASLA Honor Award and a PA-DE ASLA Scholarship.
During his fourth year, he spent one semester studying abroad at Victoria University in Wellington, New Zealand. This year his major studio projects included terrain modeling, analysis, and fabrication of a design for a major new science complex on campus, and he was one of a select few students to participate in a multidisciplinary “BIM” (Building Information Modeling) studio for the design of an extension to a university recreation center, with an emphasis on green building strategies.
Mokos plans to pursue a job in urban design and go to graduate school for architecture.
