Catalina completed her Part 1 at the University of Westminster. During her 3rd year, she undertook an exchange funded program with the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing, China. With a passion for conservation and old buildings, she wrote her dissertation on the form and function transition of the “798 Art District” in Beijing, a building complex which started as a factory for military and civilian equipment and ended up being used for galleries, shops and restaurants.
She is in constant search for challenges to prepare her in becoming an architect. Her main ambition is to return to Romania and start up a project for rehabilitation of the numerous architectural values of the country, most of which are currently in ruin or not brought up to the level equal of its worth.
Since joining Peregrine Bryant Architecture in 2019 she worked on Stationers’ Hall and Royal Hospital Chelsea.
