Viviani is an imaginative designer who navigates strict programmatic and environmental constraints with artful precision. She infuses moments of delight into her work, exploring materials and methods outside of architecture to uncover playful elements that seamlessly merge with functionality.
Viviani joined WRNS Studio in May 2019 having just won the AIA COTE Top Ten Award for Students for “Shore of a Hundred Islands”. Her project explored a culturally-sensitive, self-sustaining island community while giving careful consideration to aquatic and terrestrial ecologies.
Whether she’s assisting in the construction administration phase, scheming furniture layouts, rendering, or drafting plans and diagrams, she brings a sense of joy to her work, and has experience in multi-family housing, hospitality, and educational facilities.
Viviani earned her Bachelor of Architecture with High Distinction from California College of the Arts. During her tenure, she participated in a study abroad program in Mexico, and was nominated for several jury awards for her student work. Prior to CCA, she completed a pre-college summer program at Carnegie Mellon University where she was exposed to architectural history and practice. She is an accomplished illustrator and animator, lover of cats and houseplants, and has a penchant for drawing and painting whimsical scenes.
