Luiza Kapreliants

Growing up in a small town in the severe climate of Russian Siberia, Luiza decided to move to Moscow to pursue her architectural education. She earned her Bachelor's and Master's degrees from the Moscow Institute of Architecture (State Academy) - the oldest and most highly regarded architectural school in Russia, where they still luckily instill the craft of drawing by hand in all students! After graduation and working on various residential buildings in the historical heart of Moscow, she continued her education at the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc), which is almost the antithesis to her Russian academic education. When she's not drawing colorful sketches, you will most likely find her by the pool or at the beach contemplating life and telling scary (funny) stories about Siberia.
