Having worked at KPF for one year and a half, I am seeking an opportunity to work in a dynamic working environment, which I can apply my education background in fine arts, architecture and urban planning. My education background at RISD and AA provide me a thorough understanding of the relationship between interior and exterior and how a conceptual idea gets realized through analyzing the program and site condition.
