Rachel once dreamed of working at Lego in Denmark where she could spend all day playing with building blocks. Ooooh, the infinite design possibilities; nothing to stop her but her imagination! Today, Rachel’s building materials may have changed, but she’s still dreaming, designing and having fun. She sees architecture as the gateway to shaping peoples’ lives and is inspired to improve spaces through form and function.
Since no two buildings are alike, each project presents its own challenges. Rachel loves this part of the job! The Turlock Irrigation District Palm Street Complex and the County of San Mateo Corporation Yard Master Plan are just a few projects that encourage her to push limits and ignite her imagination. Lego’s loss is Dreyfuss + Blackford’s gain.
“Architecture is a way to help people and make a positive difference in the world. Problem solving and being creatively challenged is exciting to me. I cannot really say that about a lot of other occupations.”
