Hi, my name is Erika Wood, and I am a recent graduate of the Architectural Technology program at Sheridan College.
Throughout my life, my parents instilled in me the importance of architecture. During road trips, we pointed out our favourite buildings and discussed things like architectural period, roofline, symmetry, brickwork and artistic design elements. I was raised in a Victorian Reproduction home that they designed and built. Recently, I was able to help design my family's new Craftsman style home. I enjoyed seeing the design and build processes first-hand. This experience confirmed for me that my future lies in the field of architecture.
I also enjoy DIY projects and learning how systems are built. I believe that knowledge of construction and design components are important aspects in the overall design of a building.
