RISD INTAR Department of Interior Architecture, Providence R.I., Masters, MIA Master in Interiore Architecture

At RISD’s unique Interior Architecture program, I developed a diverse range of design skills through experience in architectural adaptation and re-use projects.  Through these projects, I became familiar with tools of architectural design such as Revit, Rhino, Autocad, 3d Max, etc. I also enjoyed the opportunity at RISD to explore other mediums of design through sculpture, and became comfortable with the material qualities of wood, ceramic and metal.  With this hands-on experience, I have been able to apply my acute familiarity with material qualities and become a better designer.
