Zaira Hughes

Architect

Architect with team-work orientation

An Architect at the studio, Zaira's interpersonal skills and interest in different perspectives greatly complement her capabilities. Such qualities have led her to several projects for major clients in the US and internationally. A professional who is creative and aware, her input helps team members better conceptualize their assignments from the viewpoint of the client and the project's inhabitants, vital to maintain a productive workflow and minimize corrections. She particularly enjoys working as a team, as it exposes everyone to dozens of interpretations of the same problem or project. Such coordination, Zaira believes, helps influence projects to find congruence, which is the fact production teams can sometimes otherwise lack during tight deadlines. She is intent on growing professionally. That is a strong point on how she views work. And it is what leads her to both stay current on the latest industry tech and always to seek new educational opportunities that expand her understanding of the discipline.
