I am a B.Arch student at Cornell University in last year of Architecture school. Having recently gone through the application process of college, transferring, and job searching I understand what college admissions and employers are currently seeking. The key to a successful application throughout all of these has been my portfolio. I would like to take a personal approach to my students so that they submit their best possible applications.
Being able to package and present your work in a portfolio is the key in today's academic and professional landscape from applying to an undergraduate design program to a job after graduation. Being able to curate a strong and unique portfolio is critical to standing out to both University admissions and employers. I would like to help my students improve their portfolios, become more familiar with Adobe software, or gain a better understanding of Rhino V-Ray rendering so that they may be able to get into the school they want or to work where they want.
Throughout my academic career, I have taken courses at both SCI-Arc and ArtCenter College of Design to supplement my education and broaden my horizon as a designer. I've also successfully translated these lessons to practice as I've worked in several firms over the summers. A link to my portfolio of work can be found here: https://andychendesign.weebly.com/architecture.html
I am a thesis student in Cornell University's Architecture program. I have taken courses at both SCI-Arc and ArtCenter College of Design to broaden my design horizon and have also worked at several firms while finishing my studies. I have a current understanding of both the college admissions and job searching process and can provide an up to date insight into how to create a successful application having done so many times myself. I can assist in portfolio development, design review, rendering, digital and physical modeling making, sketching, graphic design, and photography.
