Tannaz Fotowatjah, LEED Green Associate

Los Angeles, CA, US



I describe myself a self-starter who takes the initiative and welcomes the hard work and responsibility that follows. I have earned a Bachelor’s degree in Architecture from accredited university, and have been steadily active since, including additional training and becoming LEED certified. I have finished the AXP and have been taking the Architecture board exams.

I am currently employed at Relativity Architects, a truly challenging experience in which I have grown tremendously. Working long and unexpected hours, I have learned to exercise flexibility and perseverance, especially when working on multiple projects at the same time. Emphasis on teamwork has helped me develop and maintain superb professional relationships with colleagues, mentors and clients, while maintaining my ability to perform independently.

At this point of my career, I have been involved in many completed residential, single and multifamily, affordable housing, small retails, hospitality and commercial projects. My experiences range from preparing as-built drawings, to design and creating AutoCAD/Revit/ArchiCAD permit sets, as well as construction documents. I’m also proficient in 3D modeling and rendering.
