My name is Olga Tarasova and I am an architect. Currently I am workin in New York City. I graduated from  Cornell University in May 2019 with MSAAD (former MArch II) degree with distinction. I am from Russia and in the year 2016 I graduated from Moscow Architectural Institute with Master degree also with distinction. The major part of this education process I spent in the Yury Grigoryan’s project studio. After the graduation I worked for two years in the Moscow based architectural office Meganom.  

I believe in architecture as in great experience that we can create for people. I also believe that using an artistic approach in architecture creates a very specific result. Delicate graphical language as architectural representation is not only the visual identity of the project for me, but it is also a significant tool for architectural communication. Thus, art has become a very important chapter of my life.
