Ellie Bailey

(Washington State, USA) Ellie is a senior at Colby College (Maine) where she’s been named a Charles A. Dana Scholar and is pursuing an independent major in the Psychology of Architecture. Her honors thesis, “Creating Community Through Architecture: Social Capital and Social Cohesion in Underprivileged Communities,” explores architecture’s capacity to influence behavior in unplanned slums worldwide. Ellie was part of the Enlace Arquitectura team during the summer of 2023, where, in addition to researching land development and revitalization in rural Oaxaca, Mexico, she also worked to design a community park in a slum near Caracas, Venezuela. Amongst her many community involvements, Ellie is a member of the varsity Swim and Dive Team, where she’s been awarded the Arete Award and multiple All-Academic League Honors. Upon completing her undergraduate studies, Ellie intends to pursue a graduate degree in architecture to further her knowledge and passion for making a positive impact through urban interventions.
