Nathan Korol

Graduate Teaching Fellow & Architectural Designer Last Updated: February 19, 2017 (about 1 month ago)

Greetings! My name is Nathan Korol and I am an upcoming master of architecture graduate from the University of Oregon Portland program (June 2017). My journey through academic and professional design communities has shaped my foundation as a mission-driven designer with a fascination for both technical innovation and everyday grass-root projects. I have worked professionally in a variety of small to medium firms, each teaching me their own design process, technical skills, and collaborative cultures.

These last two years learning and exploring Portland and the Pacific Northwest have been transformational for my worldview and career outlook. I believe deeply in the power of architecture and urban design to change lives for the better, and I am currently seeking design positions where I can continue to grow and share my passion for improving the built environment.

Thank you for your time and consideration in viewing my profile and resume. Please feel free to contact me anytime with questions or comments.
