Olamide “Lami” Olorunkosebi an AIT I in CSHQA’s Denver office strives to be productive and is currently tasked with design, drawing and renderings. Areas of specialization include graphics design, visualization, and videography. “There are endless possibilities in architectural visualization; interactive rendering, VR, 360-design, etc. The world is ever evolving and so is the design sector, I want to ensure I know more than enough to evolve with.”

Lami’s Dad is a Land Surveyor and his biggest fan. He grew up going on multiple site surveys and explorations with him. In high school Lami picked up a deep interest in modeling before he even knew what architecture was. He was always fascinated by visualizing designs and bringing them to life. His Dad’s familiarity with the discipline helped narrow down his options to architecture.

The first project he worked on at University of Idaho has his heart. Themed “Market Village”, it was the first time he designed using engineered wood, or wood at all for that matter. The design was new to Lami given most designs in Nigeria are heavy on concrete. It was challenging yet stimulating designing with evolving materials. Hence his graduate project showed the possibility of hybrid construction with concrete and engineered wood in west Africa with emphasis on the technicality of the materials.

Outside of work Lami likes cooking and eating, food makes him very happy! He also enjoys long drives and road trips.
