Joan approaches architectural design through her passions for both art and science. Her background includes a wide range of project types, from commercial, to residential, to cultural centers and master planning. She is especially fluent in space planning and 3D modeling, thanks to her graduate studies in Digital Arts. She finds inspiration from natural elements and getting lost in a good book, but when it comes to implementation, she will zero in on the client’s context and specific needs. Joan’s designs are both experimental and respectful, finding solutions through an iterative and collaborative process. She believes you must respect the past in order to transform the future and applies that ethos to every project she touches.
