Esra Karagoz

New York, NY, US



I am a creative thinker, an inquisitive and idea-driven person able to see multiple aspects of situations, happy to engage with new challenges, and motivated by continual professional development.

I have 6 years of professional experience at design and construction companies as a Project Architect after graduation, where I applied my design and technical skills both as a member of a team and as a project leader.

My professional experience ranges from concept design, design development and construction documents varying from residential, airport, hotel, recreational areas and interiors.

I have Master's degree in Interior Architecture and Bachelor's degree in Architecture.

In my Master's dissertation, I focused on the relationship between design of experiential, interactive, temporary spaces and brand and marketing strategies. I researched mobile and immobile avant-garde examples from around the world and analyzed unstable and experiential economy’s effects on contemporary urban life to see the future possibilities of creating, using and changing urban spaces both in physical and virtual way.

I individually participated in architectural and design competitions in order to improve myself as a designer, handling all aspects and responsibilities of these projects.

I am highly proficient in Revit, AutoCAD, 3D Studio Max, Sketch Up, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Microsoft Office Suite. I am familiar with Rhino as well.

A design and detail-oriented person, I believe in exchanging ideas and seek to collaborate with a creative team.
