Interior design student named to Future 100 list | Dunn Connect

Cook submitted a portfolio as part of her Metropolis Future 100 application. The portfolio included another concept design, a library for teenagers. That design helped her win the BWBR prize in 2020, a contest for UW-Stout students sponsored by the St. Paul architecture and design firm.

“I wanted it to feel like a community, a safe space for teens to go and learn and a place that inspires collaboration,” she said.

Students design with a software program called Revit. “You can render your design in 3D and walk through it on your computer,” said Cook, but she also carries around a sketchbook so she can quickly record her ideas on paper.






A workspace design is part of Michaela Cook’s portfolio.




The library project featured design elements based on color theory research she did in a psychology class. She is minoring in psychology.

At UW-Stout, she has appreciated the opportunities to engage directly with many professors and be involved on campus.

“Professors have made a huge impact on who I am as a designer. They’re not afraid to tell you that you need to start pushing yourself. I didn’t think I was the best art student in my first art classes, but I definitely improved,” Cook said.

Pecha returned the compliment.

“Michaela is a joy to have in class and in the major. She is always fully engaged, very serious about her work and passionate about design. She strives for the best possible outcomes to set herself apart but also to challenge herself,” Pecha said.
