How did you first learn about architecture and when did you decide that built environment profession was an area of interest for you?

Drawing was one subject that I loved from the age of 12. I fell in love with the discipline when I became the hand for my older friends in college who needed help with architectural drawing. Travel allows me to dream and architecture to realize them.

What do you do?

I work with Perkins Eastmans higher education studio. I am part of the Editorial board for the international magazine My Liveable City.

What excites you in the work you do?

I love the rigor and process of discovering the solution that befits the design challenges. Every problem is a unique opportunity to push the boundaries of design and constantly innovate.

Featured Project Name: 

National Concert Hall

 

 

Featured Project Location: 

Vilnius, Lithuania

Featured Project Completion Date: 

Unbuilt

Role in Featured Project: 

Design Lead in group of 5 peers constituting the competition team

 

Featured Project Description:

Our proposal for the new National Concert hall is a collection of moments analogous to the City of Vilnius. Rather than create a singular monolith, we fragmented individual parts of the program, giving each its own expression and weaving “streets” into this assemblage. Our aim is to design a concert hall that creates a new public space for the city and is part of a network of cultural institutions that connect Old town to the riverfront.
