Boston Society for Architecture did a profile on Associate Zhanina Boyadzhieva, AIA Associate at Leers Weinzapfel Associates, showcasing her journey through architecture.
“I was interested in the arts from an early age, and would often put an artistic spin on my homework assignments, such as when I embellished my 8th grade essay with a paper model to frame it. Math came easily to me; my father is a math professor. In Bulgaria, where I come from, students typically choose their career path before applying to universities. I was in 10th grade when I figured that architecture could be an interesting mixture of both art and math.”
