Get to know Amanda

What kind of thinker are you?
My background in architecture and design requires a comprehension of visual documentation, aided by succinct verbal descriptions.  Without one, the other is incomplete. 

What are you an expert at?
Establishing an organizational framework for almost anything – from unit tests fits for a new condo building, to QA/QC opportunities for expedited production drawings and construction, or analyzing usable square footage in a given floor plate.  Each problem is a puzzle waiting to be solved.

What’s your favorite aspect of working at Vanke?
I thoroughly enjoy my job because each day in (or out) of the office is different.  Whether we’re on a site walk-through with contractors, or working as a team dissecting project details, each day presents new challenges.  Those challenges often act as a catalyst to investigate a new design opportunity, and better a project as a whole.

What’s your favorite building?
Institut du Monde Arabe, Jean Nouvel in Paris.
