Why Measured?

The firm and its people exhibit a lot of the values I want to develop in myself, so I see working here as an opportunity to gain both experience and mentorship.

I’m drawn to design because

Architecture is not only a solution or response to current needs, but a space for exploration — both physically and within the process of design.

Preferred style of architecture

Japanese

A space that has affected me

Villa d’Este in Rome was definitely an experience; but you have not lived ’til you’ve experienced the art and architecture on the Naoshima and Teshima Islands in Japan.
