I started my shop because I realized I love design and wanted to explore it at a much smaller and more personal scale than in architecture. With 3D modeling and 3D printing I found that I could produce unique and complex designs that would not be possible any other way. My background in architecture often seeps into my smaller scale design work. Initially that was unintentional, but I quickly discovered that I enjoy allowing architecture to inspire and guide my process.
A little bit more about me and my work...
I received my Bachelors of Arts degree in Architecture from Berkeley. After interning at various architecture firms I went on to a 3 year graduate program at UCLA where I received a Masters of Architecture degree. I worked for a few years in Los Angeles before deciding that as much as I loved Architecture I wasn't sure working as an architect for the rest of my life was really what was best for me. Eventually this led me to creating Archetype Z Studio.
Archetype Z Studio has been featured on the sites of Wired Magazine, Lucky Magazine, Entrepreneur.com, New York Daily News, 2modern, Design Milk, Little Red Umbrella and other art/design blogs and publications. It was also featured in the San Diego Union Tribune with a photo on the front page and an article in the business section.
