When I was growing up, I was fascinated how drawing lines and shapes on a piece of paper could be transformed into blueprints for constructing buildings and that’s what led me into the Architecture field.
I can’t tell you how fulfilling it is to now be the author of those lines and shapes, the information used by contractors to build DLA’s innovative 3-dimensional spaces and buildings.
