Melanie Ngami



Mel knew she wanted to go into architecture when she realized how much she loved seeing a sketch brought to life. She studied both architecture and civil engineering and views design of the built environment as visual storytelling. Mel sees architecture as having fundamentally psychological functions, as well as physical, which makes the difference in her frequent model-building, in which she brings digital worlds to life.
