New York, NY, US



Sylvia Lee holds a bachelor of architecture from Pratt Institute, during which she studied in Rome for a semester. Her academic projects focus on specific narration of the human body as they enter and exit a space, and visualizations of key moments within the architecture. Upon completion of a 6 month internship Sylvia was offered full time employment and went straight into the workforce designing high-end interior systems. In 2015 she co-founded New Hope Media, a project based on the need to share the stories of a group of people who gather weekly in Yonkers. Currently, Sylvia is seeking employment in a fast-paced environment where learning is always richly available, and good design is to be harvested.
