I am an up-coming architect who have five years undergraduate architectural knowledge and one year advanced architectural study at UCLA.  Attributed to two competitions and the internship experience, I placed more concern on construction and detail of building in my undergraduate time. In Ozel studio of my graduate period, I contacted high-tech and interdisciplinary architecture, including human-robot interactive design, UI interface design, augmented reality and virtual reality. For these experience, I have the chance to be familiar with many software. Now, it is high time to realize the value of education.
