For Elena Naydenova, architecture is about the bigger picture. With a Bachelor of Science in Architecture and a Master of Architecture, both from Georgia Tech, she took her passion for creative thinking and turned it into something tangible. Elena masterfully juggled classes, founding a sorority chapter, serving on the executive board of the American Institute of Architecture students, and volunteering all while working to support herself. Prior to her work with C+TC, she interned on multi-family and residential projects in Sofia, Bulgaria.
Growing up, she was fascinated by both history and art, and found that architecture was the best way to pursue all her interests. It also allowed her to be a part of a more sustainable and environmentally conscious future. In her free time, Elena loves to travel the world, learn new languages, and experience new cultures. Each new place she visits allows her to explore everything from technical details of how the buildings and society work and come together, to the sense of place and the emotional effect of a space on the people who use it.
