Kohn Partnership Architects
M.Arch., B.A (Hons)
Vineetha Sivathasan is a graduate of the Masters of Architecture program from the University of Toronto's John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design. She currently works at Kohn Partnership Architects, where she is continuing her path to become a fully licensed Architect in Ontario.
She believes that giving back in some form is essential for professional and personal growth and as such, she volunteer for a few committees. She currently sits in as an Interns Committee Member of the Ontario Association of Architects, where they tackle issues pertaining to future architects like herself. When time permits, volunteers with Toronto Society of Architects.
Like most architectural graduates, she found the urge to do more after school and outside of work, through various freelance projects. The scope of these projects include visual, conceptual and 3D representation of clients’ intended ideas for the City of Toronto, and exhibition visualization for various museums in Toronto. As well as, event/exhibition coordination and graphic design for the Ontario Association of Architects’ Intern Committee for their //MOVE Party, an art installation party. Recently, she worked with Esther E. Shipman, an internationally renowned curator, to design and create her brand and website for her new business venture focusing on art, architecture and cultural tourism in Portugal. She finds that each freelance project has its own challenges and excitements, and at the end of the day, there is always something new to be learned from each one. She finds her career, freelance projects, and volunteer jobs have and is leading the way for her to find inspiration and artistic identity that is an amalgamation of her cultural and individual identity.
Vineetha is an Executive Committee Member of BEAT and focuses on graphics and communication media, leveraging social networks to further promote BEAT’s programming and mandate.
