Drawn to the arts from a young age, Azita discovered her connection to architecture after attending a two-week summer program in high school. What initially began as an exploration into interior design at Drexel University in Philadelphia turned into an 8-year deep dive into architecture, where she also discovered her love for architectural history. After completing her Master of Architecture at the University of Washington, she was confident to have found the perfect combination for her career, a place to be collaborative, contribute creatively, and apply her desire to be detail oriented.

As a student at the University of Washington, Azita spent a summer interning at WT before becoming a full-time team member in 2022. It was perfect timing for her to join the 415 Westlake project, and she’s excited to be a part of the design process as it unfolds. Next, she’s looking forward to pursuing her license through NCARB and continuing to grow and familiarize herself with different aspects of the field.

Outside the office, Azita has many hobbies, from martial arts to drawing, but one of her favorites is model making. As a self-proclaimed perfectionist, she loves working on miniature house models, especially adding her unique details to level up any kit she can get her hands on. And when she needs a little inspiration, you’ll find her out in nature or admiring Japanese Art and Architecture.
