I am highly enthusiastic, inspired and interested in finding creative solutions to challenges. I am a dedicated team player and able to work independently. I have excellent communication skills, looking to take the lead and have an appetite for learning. I have the ambition to pass RIBA Part III qualification exam in the nearest future. I have strong skills in concept and detail development. I have a good understanding of technical aspects of design, building contracts and regulations in the UK. I have excellent hand drawing and model making skills. I am proficient in several software programmes and have certificates by BIM Academy. I speak five languages.
I worked as an Architectural Assistant in the Research Design Institute of Urbanism (St Petersburg) where I participated in the redevelopment of a residential area. I was involved in RIBA stages 1-4 while working on this project. I undertook my postgraduate course at the Glasgow School of Art and my undergraduate programme at St Petersburg State University of Architecture and Civil Engineering (Russia).
Apart from architecture, I am passionate about art and explore the relationship between the two disciplines in my projects. My interest in art led me to attend the MRes Art Theory and Philosophy Course at Central Saint Martins. Now I work as a Project Coordinator in Chalton Gallery. I assist in the curation of the Art Night Programme, apply for funding programmes and closely work with artists. I also run Art Theory and Philosophy Collective that my coursemates and I established in 2019. Our recent performances were staged at Tate Modern and the Old Biscuit Factory.
I am also interested in research. I participated in the research project “The Liveable City”, led by Glasgow Urban Laboratory in association with US-UK Fulbright Commission. The work on this project was followed by a book publication “The Liveable City. Glasgow and Boston”.
