Paola Badea, Assoc. AIA, LEED GA

Junior Architectural Designer

Paola decided to study architecture because she has always been intrigued by how buildings and voids in a city affect the way people live. Paola attended seven different schools growing up, so she understands better than many that our moods and behaviors are a direct result of the buildings surrounding us. Paola is inspired by her son and seeing the impossible become possible. The surest way to inspire her into action is to tell her she cannot do, be or have something. Her life-long hope is not to age, but it’s too soon to tell if she will be able to make this impossible feat possible.
