Who or what inspires you professionally?

Whenever I go to a city and see a building well known by an architect, it inspires me to dream of one day having a building, or buildings, that people will recognize as my own.

Bio:

The great designer, Ginikachi Eburuoh, commonly known as Kachi, is a graduate from both Morgan State University’s Bachelors and Masters Program with a Certificate in Sustainable Communities. During her post-secondary education she served as a mentor, teaching and tech assistant, and student advocate in the School of Architecture and Planning. In a household of medical professionals, Kachi aims to reflect through her design consideration for human health and experience within the built environment.

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

Being from a family of only medical professionals, I was not exposed to architecture or design. It was not until my sophomore year in high school when I took my first drafting class where I experienced the pleasure of problem solving through design.

What do you do?

I am an architectural designer at WGM Architecture and Interiors in Annapolis, Maryland. I am a board member for Bmore NOMA and also a youth mentor for my high school and college alma maters.

What excites you in the work you do?

My excitement comes from seeing things that I've worked on passionately get erected in the real world. I also find excitement in encouraging others to pursue their passion in architecture through thoughtful critiques and life conversations.

Who or what inspires you professionally?

Whenever I go to a city and see a building well known by an architect, it inspires me to dream of one day having a building, or buildings, that people will recognize as my own.

 

What is your proudest professional accomplishment or achievement?

My proudest achievement is having three (3) houses in Nigeria that were built based on my floor plans.
