West Hollywood, CA, US



My name is Tatiana Kazakova. I have graduated from the Kazan State University of
Architecture and Engineering in July 2011. At the present time, I’m living in Los Angeles and
studying architecture and interior design at UCLA.
During the period of study at the University I mastered various directions and concepts of
modern architecture and town planning development. In preparation for graduate work at the
university, I did a study on the history and the main aspects of the construction of residential
complexes in the world. The principle directions of my research were innovations in the
construction of residential complexes, construction, and the popularity of apartment complexes
and skyscrapers in Russia, the need for public housing. During my university studies, I worked
in the architectural studio under the direction of the chairman of the Union of Architects of the
Republic Tatarstan V.P.Loginov - honored Architect of Russia, designing of objects successfully
in the Republic of Tatarstan. Our century is the century of new technologies. A huge role in the
development of art and of various fields of life belongs to apartment complexes, which divides
and unites multiple city functions. An enthusiastic and dedicated professional with good abilities
in architecture, design and Urban planning. A team player with excellent communication skills
and academic qualifications, who has recently graduated with a degree in Urban planning and
Architecture. Possessing a proven ability to ensure projected architectural designs are functional,
safe and economical and meet the needs of the client. Excellent communication skills to keep in
touch with clients to ensure that the project designs match their needs Easy going by nature and
able to get along with both work colleagues, currently working an architect in Urban architecture
and construction Department of Kazan and studied in Kazan (Volga Region) Federal University
(the Institute of Language). With over 2 years of experience in architectural design, I have skills
and experience in planning, designing and coordinating projects both in the public sectors. My
excellent communication, public relations, problem-solving and leadership skills make me a
highly valuable employee and team leader. “I feel that my three greatest strengths are firstly my
ability to have a clear understanding of the needs of client. Secondly the satisfaction I get from
being involved in a building project. Finally my passion for being involved in creating buildings
that could last for decades and knowing that they will make a positive impact on people lives and
the environment. As an architect I am very interested in interior design, which combines art and
industrial design, as well as in the development of the urban environment as a unified system of
urban planning and the importance of international experience for me and modern approaches to
planning and urban residential areas, towns, villages. Also, 2 year in my life I have worked in a
Kazan art gallery. I such enjoy to meet and communicate with the new various interesting
people, open new art modern technologies and improve my knowledge about art.
My communication skills have been greatly enhanced through all of my positions, especially at
Art gallery of Russian art (Kazan), where I had the responsibility to communicate concepts
quickly and clearly to the design team. I am confident these skills will be an asset when
negotiating with vendors.
