About 

Victor is a Bachelors of Art in Architecture Candidate in Columbia University in the City of New York. Currently as a graduating senior, his work emphasizes on communicating design through varying modes of representation. Each design considers how the perception and experience of architecture shapes spaces and interactions. 

Victor currently works as an gallery/production intern for the Storefront for Art and Architecture and a course assistant for an introductory studio class. To date, Victor has had work experience with Wolfgang and Hite, Kaleidoscope Design Bureau, and RAAD Studio. 

Coming from Ghana, Victor has tailored his experiences and education to gain a holistic approach to architecture that considers culture, history, the environment and sustainability.
