A Passion for Sustainable Architecture

June 4, 2018

One of the most exciting things about the culture at TLCD is the opportunity to work with people at varying stages of their career. That includes looking for the best and brightest talent coming out of architecture school. Ashwini Kokate joins TLCD as a Designer having recently graduated from the Masters’ program in Building Science at University of Southern California (USC). She has a particular passion for sustainable architecture and how it integrates with technology.

At USC Ashwini was drawn to the emphasis on energy conscious design, as well as the development of research and design methods in a variety of study areas. This includes day lighting analysis and energy analysis through BIM (building information modeling). With her proficiency in REVIT and other software programs, she is excited about taking her knowledge to a higher level.

Ashwini has quickly blended into TLCD’s education studio and is busy working with the team on several community college projects. She is exploring Sonoma County and all the hiking opportunities this area offers. We even got her to join in the annual TLCD summer camping trip this August!
