Riley Baechler, BEnD '18, School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture
Prior to returning to school to study in the Environmental Design (ENDS) program, I worked for several years in the construction industry where I developed an interest in the built environment. This interest flourished in the ENDS program. During my time in this program I was able to take advantage of study abroad and directed study opportunities that allowed me to gain a more comprehensive understanding of how design affects the human experience. I look forward to building on this passion while continuing my studies at UBC SALA.

Prior to my Master of Landscape Architecture I received a Bachelor of Architecture in Mumbai. Due to my affinity towards the field of landscape, I worked in a landscape design firm for a couple of years, contributing to a variety of landscape projects. My passion for landscape architecture grew stronger and therefore I decided to enroll in the Master of Landscape Architecture at UBC. I feel incredibly fortunate for the support received from my family and for the great opportunities I’ve had as a result of getting involved with my peers, professors and field professionals at UBC.
