Jacqueline Lavin

Brooklyn, NY, US



I am a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design with a Bachelors of Architecture and Fine Arts with strong skills in drawing, architectural drafting, model making, rendering, construction administration, and understanding architectural concept. I have experience with establishing relationships with clientele and a strong ability for communication.

I understand drawing as a vital way to communicate the essence of a project to a collaborator and client. And as someone prone to working in collaborative settings, I am excited by the dynamics of working within a studio environment where ideas are constantly tested through making.
