About 

I have just completed my studies at Southern California Institute of Architecture and I am currently looking for the right opportunity that would enable me to gain valuable work experience in an Architecture Office. I am looking for a full time position. 

 

I have developed an interest in hand drafting and model building in High School. I continued my Architecture education at University of Washington, learning how to produce documents for Residential and Commercial projects. Thereafter, I transfered to SCI-Arc. I have been learning various methods of design as well as different modes of representation. This has given me a better understanding of construction and building methodology to achieve a more diverse set of tools .

In addition to the knowledge I’ve obtained from my education, my experience in studio has provided me with an excellent background in the practical aspects of design and research.  Every piece of work I do should be resolved to a certain extent and exhibit a level of quality that should present greater understanding of the project and problems that allow further development.

Education 

Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc), Los Angeles, CA, US, BArch, Architecture

The undergraduate program at SCI-Arc is a five-year (ten-term) professional Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch) program, accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB).

SCI-Arc’s undergraduate program integrates the development of knowledge of a wide range of conceptual and practical skills, from critical thinking to technical expertise, to create a fluid and holistic approach to the education of the becoming contemporary architect. Throughout the program, emphasis is placed on the development of the individual student's personal growth, self reflection and knowledge of architectural design issues, including theoretical constructs and advancements in building technology, and ranging from applications of high-performance "intelligent" materials to considerations for sustainable practices.

The undergraduate curriculum is built around an integrated sequence of design studios, Visual Studies, History and Theory, Media and Technology courses, into which interdisciplinary seminars in the Arts, Sciences, and Humanities are woven. Following the foundation and core sequence, upper-division courses are offered in Professional Practice and related subjects. Over five years of study, students become actively engaged in the discussion of the practice of architecture and are prepared to join the workforce.
