Brianda has worked on a variety of projects - from carpentry for a residence in the upper west side of Chicago to coordinating the Mies Crown Hall America’s Prize (MCHAP) that recognizes the most distinguished architectural works built on the North and South American continents.

Brianda is a curious mind looking to hone in on the interplay between individuals and their surroundings and how architecture shapes people and their actions. When she’s not busy coming up with a new personal project, she's probably cooking, working out, or spending time with her family and friends.
