Considering there is a big opportunity between Architecture and Landscape, I am interested in creating a new relationship between the building and the land. I also believe there must be different specific form for different building types that we, as architects must find to combine it with our land deeply and find more eternal forms.

Reference letter for Isaac Chang

To whom it may concern: This letter is written in support of Isaac Chang who has proven to be a responsible and cable individual. I have known Isaac from the beginning of the August 2012, when he started his internship with Z-A Studio. As Z-A Studio is a small practice there are no hierarchies in the structure of the practice. This enabled me to follow every individual very closely and to be intimately involved in their work. I saw in Isaac a willingness to learn new software and a desire to produce renderings on the highest level. Isaac is responsible and will perform any task he is given, whether it was producing graphic layouts or working on a competition. I’m sure he will contribute to any design office environment.

Very truly yours,

Guy Zucker Z-A Studio Owner and President
