An affinity for design took hold of Andria Langi while growing up in Bandung, West Java, Indonesia. During this time, she became fascinated with the city’s historical buildings and issues related to the fabric of cities, realizing that design can provide solutions to transform both.

Andria acquired her Bachelor of Science from the Bandung Institute of Technology before completing her Master of Architecture through the University of Manitoba. Her thesis, Tales of the People: Folklores and Heritage Preservation in a Multicultural City, received the 2021 Manitoba Association of Architects Medal for the best Comprehensive Design thesis. Stories of people and places inspire Andria, and she strongly considers placemaking to be at the core of every good design process.

Since joining ft3 as an architectural intern, Andria has been instrumental in large-scale projects such as Portage District General Hospital and Salem Home Visioning, which have sharpened her design development abilities to visualize and execute the architect’s ideas and translate them into BIM models. The notion that architecture extends beyond the physical building drives Andria forward, and she wants to continue exploring architecture’s influence on communities and the landscape.
