New York, NY, US



I am looking to join a NYC design firm.

I have a 3-year work experience and knowledge of the architectural process and a strong aptitude for design.

As a Project Architect and Team Leader I worked on a School Complex project for Toury Vallet Architects, a Parisian firm collaborating with international firms such as Kengo Kuma - Tokyo, Japan and FOA - London, England. From competition to construction I researched and coordinated work with contractors across all phases. I came up and implemented innovative solutions to improve the building value and efficiency.

I am passionate about working with multicultural teams in different languages.
With the San Paolo Tower project in Turin (Italy) I worked in Paris in French for an Italian agency (Renzo Piano) and collaborated with a cross-cultural team of French, Italian and English architects. This experience taught me the value of combining talents and perspectives from different countries to achieve a unique result, in this case Italy’s first ever bio-climatic skyscraper.
