RIANA LAGO | JUNIOR DESIGNER
Born and raised in the Philippines, Riana’s curiosity for architecture is rooted in the celebration of her Southeast Asian roots and influences, thus leading her to move to the United States to pursue a Bachelor’s Degree in Architecture at UC Berkeley. In the midst of the pandemic, she took part in resort and multi-family residential projects at PDP Architecture. This opportunity gave her a deep understanding of people-centered design, specifically for spaces as intimate as the home. This experience also compelled her to join a detail-oriented firm with client-specific design solutions while working on her next goal in becoming a licensed architect.
Outside of jmA, Riana enjoys exploring the food scene in San Francisco and creating curated Pinterest boards of upcoming fashion houses. Her interest in photography is also a nod to her appreciation for architecture and the world around her — one snapshot at a time.
