Over the course of her career, Karla’s work has ranged from the 217,000 square foot Atlantic Health Jets Training Facility to her 1,100 square foot Chicago home. She worked at SOM, taught a summer design program at Parsons, and designed and built a space in Manhattan which was published in Metropolis Magazine. With the idea that architecture is a means of connecting people to each other as much as to their environment, she strives to build good relationships with clients, consultants and contractors.
