My name is Derek Cariglia and I am a Toronto native, excited about the future of Architecture in the Urbanized Space. I have sought to make Design my passion and career since the early days of middle school, and after many years, I can finally say it is becoming a reality!I have loved my time at OCAD U as it has given me the tools I need to succeed in the field of Architecture. Working Full-Time in Architectural professional practice since the end of 2021, while finishing my degree, has allowed me to exist in both the practical and academic realms simultaneously. This duality of study and work has allowed me to apply the pragmatic nature of in-firm work, with the relatively fluidity of conceptual design and iteration that exists within the educational sphere.Looking towards the future I wish to continue my growth both professionally and academically, with my sights set on a graduate degree and furthering my industry experience.
