Carter was raised in Phoenix, AZ and attended the University of Pennsylvania for his undergraduate studies. He majored in architecture and minored in landscape architecture & regional planning. He spent his remaining free time competing on Penn’s Varsity Swim Team and completing the Architectural Experience Program (AXP) at local and international architecture firms. Carter had the opportunity to work in firms in Phoenix, The Netherlands, Philadelphia, and completed the National Outdoor Leadership School in Australia. Upon graduation from Penn, Carter worked in New York City at an A&E firm specializing in institutional, commercial, and lower income housing projects before moving to New Orleans to continue his education.
Carter recently moved back to Philadelphia after completing his graduate school training at Tulane University in New Orleans. While living down south, Carter graduated with honors with a Master of Architecture and Master of Sustainable Real Estate Development. He studied sustainability with a focus on water management and subsidence as related to the Mississippi River. Carter was a finalist for the Housing and Urban Development (HUD) lower income housing competition in 2018 and won honorable mention for his work on the London Museum of Language and Northern Lights Hostel competitions. Carter spent three years in New Orleans developing property, researching sustainable water management systems, and enjoying the abundance of live music, creole food, and eccentric lifestyle of the Big Easy.
Carter’s extensive professional background coupled with his sustainability education will position him to be a crucial asset to the design and sustainability team. We are happy to have him supporting our staff and excited to watch him grow into an influential role at The Sheward Partnership.
