Chicago, IL, US



My name is Michelle Yahya and I recently graduated from Bowling Green State University acquiring a Bachelors of Science in Architecture.  My passion has always been architecture from the time I was a little girl growing up with the fusion of American, Mexican and Italian culture.  I will begin my Masters in Architecture at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, Illinois and am currently looking for an opportunity downtown to put my skills in Design and Architecture at use.

I speak fluent Spanish, French and Veneto and have designed for many different programs, from pavilions, to architecture schools, to theater's all taking into consideration site, structure, space and it's users.  I have knowledge in Auto CAD, 3ds Max, Adobe Suite and more.  I enjoy every process of design and construction from the most preliminary and detailed points to the overall design and management.

Feel free to contact me if you are interested in having me become a part of your team.
