OAA Intern Architect, M.Arch.,
B.Arch.Sci., CanBIM P2, WELL AP™
Sam Luong is an OAA Intern from Toronto who has worked on a variety of large-scale architectural projects for international firms, ranging from higher education, aviation, and mixed-use residential projects.
With eight years of work experience in Canada, his knowledge in a diversity of industry standard production software and his range in delivering projects from early design to construction administration phase, are all valuable assets that he brings on to any project team.
Sam often finds himself wearing many hats on architectural projects, as both a proficient BIM Coordinator and as an Architectural Designer. As a Certified CanBIM P2 member and an Autodesk Revit Architecture Certified Professional, Sam is also an advanced Revit user who can efficiently model buildings in 3D while simultaneously output 2D construction drawing sets, both of which are critical skills in saving project time and cost. Having worked on several complex Revit models on large project teams, Sam has managed and put together a Project’s Execution Plan (PXP), a Revit standardization manual that governs a particular project by contextualizing a client’s needs.
Lastly, Sam is tremendously passionate about health and well-being. As a certified WELL Accredited Professional (WELL AP), Sam explored how Wellness can be integrated with Smart Technology into various types of residential typologies throughout his online M.Arch. studies at Lawrence Technological University. This eventually formed the foundation for studio cloud nine.
When not practicing architecture, his hard work ethic, determination and open-mindedness has led him to explore many creative fields such as narrative photography, writing, music, fitness, food, and even indoor plants, all of which has continued to broaden his understanding of architectural design and to become a better designer.
As a member of your team, Sam will draw upon all his creative passions, technical talents and work experiences to ensure that the project and the team are both successful.
