AW-ARCH Promotes Five


CAMBRIDGE, MA–AW-ARCH announce the elevation of five of its staff members, all of whom have been strong contributors to its studio since joining the firm.

Daria Solomon has been named a Senior Associate, Emily Whitbeck has been promoted to Associate, and Yichu Jiang, Ana Arenas, and Paul Wood have been named Senior Designers.

Daria Solomon manages complex, multifaceted projects, demonstrating great expertise and a thorough understanding of each project’s many aspects. She is a quick thinker who communicates superbly with clients, builders, fabricators, and design team members.

Emily Whitbeck started at AW-ARCH while a graduate student at MIT. Her perspective, body of knowledge and understanding of what it takes to successfully complete a project make her integral to our work’s success and to our office culture.

Yichu Jiang, Ana Arenas, and Paul Wood all joined our studio in the same year. It is to their great credit that each brought a deep architectural background to AW-ARCH and quickly found ways to develop individual skills that complement their project teams in singular and important ways.

AW-ARCH values professional development, mentoring staff members to help them understand its commitment to design excellence and innovation, and demonstrating its collaborative design approach to ensure successful project outcomes.
