Sophie Kaplan Bucciarelli
Studio Assistant

Sophie is from Amherst, Massachusetts, where she spent her childhood digging for river clay, tending to her family’s summer garden, and hiking the vibrant fall hills. Her introduction to the intersections of design, community, and place occurred while she was planting public-access fruit trees in the Pioneer Valley for a local nonprofit. She primarily assists in project administration and design at MVVA. 

Sophie received a Bachelor of Arts in Urban Studies and a minor in Studio Art from Vassar College, in Dutchess County, New York. Prior to joining MVVA in 2020, she worked on an urban master plan with planner, consultant, and Vassar Adjunct Assistant Professor of Geography Susan G. Blickstein, researched for the Urban Design Forum, and oversaw Vassar College’s greenhouse.
