For Rowena, architecture bridges the gap between communication, social inequality, and connection to resources through the design of places and systems – a focus she reinforces through her design practice. Rowena earned her masters degree in architecture from the University of Michigan; she became a registered architect in the State of California and a LEED Accredited Professional in 2019.
As an Architectural Designer, Rowena has worked on numerous project types, including academic, institutional, science & technology, tenant improvement, interior workplace, corporate, health, commercial development, and campus master plans. In each project, she explores the role of architecture in the changing modern world. She strengthens the project team with her open communication, creativity, comprehensive project coordination, and technical knowledge.
