My name is Alexander Kardanovskiy, I am a recent graduate of the B.Arch program at the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc) in Los Angeles, CA, and currently working at Charlap Hyman & Herrero architecture and design firm.

This portfolio website represents my five years of undergraduate studies in architecture, including an internship and freelance work.

"Absorb the world around you

but always stay true to yourself."


This mindset closely relates to my work ethics. I enjoy taking risks and going against the flow within my projects, thus enhancing the user experience. However, despite enjoying architectural experiments, I strongly believe in the power of simplicity and accessibility of architecture. Instead of relying on visual complexity and close-to-impossible construction, I prefer to skip the distracting wrapping and focus on space's usability. 


I see a good design consisting of a well-thought-out structure combined with clean yet bold moves.
