LIPI Bavishi

I moved to Australia with my parents when I was 13 and commenced school at Mount Gravatt State High School. I always enjoyed drawing, inventing and making things when I was a child. In grade 12, I planned to be an accountant, but I was always captivated by art. 

One day, my cousin introduced me to architecture and took me to the architectural building at university. I saw the architects producing their drawings and creating models. I had never considered architecture as a career but the sketches, drawings and colours influenced my decisions to study architecture after graduating high school. 

I began working at Mark Williams Architects in May 2015 whilst I was completing my Bachelor degree at QUT. I am now in my final semester, and can't wait to graduate!
