“I really enjoyed working with ASR, and I believe I improved a lot as a designer. 

What I value more than anything else is their commitment to helping me find my voice through design projects and strategic exercises. The most exciting time for me was when I discovered that I had all kinds of wonderful ideas in me. Building the portfolio project by project was an opportunity for me to create something awesome that would allow me to get into a top architecture school, but it was also a chance to express myself under the supervision of a great design instructor. 

Overall, the experience was great, and I am thankful that I worked with ASR, because they really helped me get into Columbia GSAPP’s M.Arch. program.”

Let us help you get there too!
