About 

I have built my working career for four years as a junior and intermediate architectural designer in South Korea before attending graduate school at GSAPP, Columbia University. During my professional experience, I worked with a skilled team to develop the design and involved in an entire design process, participating in various projects from idea competitions to practical projects. Thanks to experiencing diverse projects in different fields such as from school to commercial and housing, I had developed various skills so became proficient of architectural drawings and graphics which are useful in practice. Additionally, by studying with talented students and faculty at GSAPP, Columbia University, I broadened the way of thinking in various scale and depth. Especially, I was fascinated with exploring and visualizing urban data for getting a better understanding of a city. This encouraged me to extend my knowledge from a single building lot to a district, a city, and a region. So, I believe that I became the person who has more open and flexible in various fields of architecture. Still, I am eager to learn new design methods and to develop the way to design with excellent staffs, sharing thoughts and opinions from diverse backgrounds.
