Valerie Reynolds

New York, NY, US



i am an architect/designer/ and idealist. i completed my undergraduate degree in los angeles in 2007 and worked in a young, small, design firm in la until 2009. i came to new york to earn a degree in advanced architectural design from columbia university, and am currently utilizing my time  to further refine my goals and carve my path in the world. i believe firmly that any work that I do should benefit a greater good and have a deep rooted sense of social responsibility; this is at the heart of all my work and influences the projects i choose to pursue and the way in which i design. i hold onto the notion that architecture can have a positive, and visible influence or at the very least that every design should have greater intent.
