I have five yesrs work experience in South Korea and abroad and became familiar with the comprehensive process of architecture. I have learned important details of essential parts of a building design from the projects I have participated in. In addition, various competition projects that required deliverables in short period of time enabled me to quickly respond to any given problems.

I am particularly interested in designing complex masses and structural shapes by using parametric design methods. Through my graduate studies at IIT, I have concentrated on using Grasshoper and Revit and acquired necessary abilities to solve complicated design problems.

I am capable of the followings:

- Using revit for architectural design and parametric detail

- Using Rhino and Grasshopper for Architectural concept modeling

- Creating details and expressing them through graphical models

- Making 2D CAD drawings

- Creating structural drawings, models, details using 3D programs
