I got Master's degree from IIT in July 2011.

I have much diverse work experience in architecture in Korea for 7 years. I had the opportunity to work on various building types. My work spanned a wide range of experiences dealing with the phases of construction from schematic design to construction documents before I came to America.

At IIT, I have learned 3Ds Max, Revit, Rhino, Ecotect, eQuest, grasshopper.

In 2010, I entered a sustainable architectural design competition and led a team of three to win 1st prize out of 400 teams. 

In 2011, I completed an intense research project on high-rise structures and sustainable energy as part of my thesis work.

After graduate IIT, since November 2011, I worked as an Architectural Assistant for Solomon Cordwell Buenz Company. There, I developed schematic designs using SketchUp and construction drawings using AutoCAD and Revit for residential, hotel, and commercial projects. 

I worked at 4240 Architect for internship for 2 month after that.

Since 09. 2014, Now I'm working WR WEIS for coordination and shop drawing for stone façade and paving.
