Negar Amini

Originally from Iran, Negar moved to Seattle after earning her master degree in architecture from University of North Carolina in Charlotte, which created a passion in her for appreciation of digital architecture and pursuing radical ways of looking to architecture as an interdisciplinary practice. She sees visualization and presentation as a way for exploring the architecture as well. Getting a master degree in landscape architecture in Iran, made a foundation for her to understand context. form and space along with each other. She enjoys checking out projects of her favorite architects like Thom Mayne while traveling. Outside of office, she has an obsession for arts, reading about history, social equity, exploring the unique nature of Pacific North West and going to the gym.
