I am an Architect from Dhaka, Bangladesh. I have just graduated from Virginia Tech with my Master of Architecture degree and currently looking for 'Architectural Designer' job in the USA. I have my Bachelor of Architecture degree from BUET in 2012 and since then involved in numerous architectural projects. I have worked in Ehsan Khan Architects for more than three years and have experienced in projects of bridge design, urban design, residential and interior design. I got my professional license of architecture practice in Bangladesh in 2015 and have done a hospital and few residential projects under self-practice named ARVEN. My graduate thesis topic was 'Cosmo House', designing a complex housing for the neo-nomad who live in a city away from their home for a few years only but still deserve to feel like home.
