Alex Barthel

(B.Arch, M. Arch, MPS)

Alex Barthel is a project manager at Adamick Architecture. Alex received his undergraduate degree at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee and then obtained his Masters of Architecture and Master of Preservation Studies degrees at Tulane University. UWMs curriculum, that focused on sustainability practices and Milwaukee’s array of historical building styles initially piqued Alex’s interest in historic preservation. After two years of work experience in Milwaukee, Alex decided to pursue a higher education at Tulane with the intent of building on his passion for historical architecture and placemaking. After graduating from Tulane, Alex returned to Wisconsin for a brief time to explore the engineering aspects of architecture. Feeling unfulfilled in his desire to contribute the field of preservation and architecture, Alex returned to New Orleans to work on projects that fused these two interests. He currently resides in Algiers Point and enjoys commuting to work via the ferry on his bicycle. His hobbies range from home carpentry projects to amateur beer brewing, and long walks on the levee with his dog, Cypress.
