Over the 9 years, throughout three degrees, I have developed multiple design approaches to architecture and urban design by suggesting creative concepts and producing drawings and renderings. I just graduated from master’s degree, it means that now I have significant potential to take out knowledge, fresh ideas and 2D/3D graphic skills learned from school to professional fields!

Diverse Design Approaches
Throughout three architectural degrees, I have developed multiple design approaches to formal architecture, free-form digital architecture, and urban with suggesting creative concepts, producing drawings using various software programs and physical models. 

Professional Visualization Skills
I worked as a freelance visualization designer and model-maker for large-scale projects such as apartment complex, cultural space, hospital, and Institute. I have expertise in figuring out the best visualization methods for each process of design phases. I have strong visualization styles, but also I can transform it like chameleon depends on whatever client or design teams want.
