Kyu Sung Woo Architects, Cambridge, MA, US, Architectural Designer

Being the only member of a design team at KSWA, I had the opportunity to work directly with the principal and participate across various stages of project administration including consultant selections, fee estimation, and client meetings. As an architectural designer at KSWA, I was able to manage not only different project phases but also various project types such as civic, religious, and residential. Throughout projects, I worked promptly to produce drawing documentations, both digital and physical models, and presentation packages. Specifically in the Paris Street Pool Renovations, I completed drawing sets for SD and DD, base drawings for CD, a material board, and an initial FF&E package. For the Hanmaum Zen Center, I completed two Concept Design packages producing drawings, physical models, and digital models, through which I coordinated with the structural engineer. I also reproduced graphic drawings of the Hanmaum Zen Center and the House II for promotional purposes of media publications and award entries. Collaborating with diverse professional consultants, I have developed communication skills to coordinate works and occasionally outsource necessary tasks. In addition to architectural projects, I managed general administration-related work to maintain the office in an organized and comfortable working environment.
