Meet Victoria Richter, one of our Architectural Staff members. Victoria is new to Glenn|Partners and recently graduated from Oklahoma State University School of Architecture.
Victoria is originally from Russia but moved to Oklahoma when she was twelve. Since her background is so diverse, Victoria speaks Russian, English, German, and Spanish. During her high school years, she was a competitive rower and broke several records.
"As an architect you design for the present, with an awareness of the past, for a future which is essentially unknown."
In her free time, Victoria enjoys playing with her dogs Sophie and Rex, cooking traditional Russian recipes, playing on the piano, and painting. She has also recently joined Urban Sketchers in Dallas and continues to produce artwork for Tulsa Medical Society Annual Fundraiser.
During her time at Glenn|Partners, Victoria has been working on design and planning for NISD Middle School 7 and University of Dallas Masterplan. Both projects are currently in schematic design phase.
