"I think that landscape architecture should be human-centered, phenomenal and poetic. The best part of my work is getting immersed in the landscape systems and understanding how urbanization and bottom-up engagement can impact a project in a postive way. I'm gaining such valuable design experience and the T.C.L. team is supportive and encouraging to me as I start my career."
