Portfolio

Hello! My name is Dalvir Nanara, and I am a graduate student from the Master of Architecture program from the University of Calgary. I was born and raised in Vancouver, British Columbia and from a young age, have had a passion for architecture and the idea of creating something that would have the ability to augment or re-evaluate people and the spaces they occupy. Growing up consisted of weekends tagging along with my father to construction sites where I learned the processes and practices that go along with the respective trade. It was at this early development where I was taught to shift my preconceptions on various situations and find alternative solutions that would be out of the ordinary. With having a mother who is an artist, she granted me with the greatest gift of teaching me how to hold a pencil and sharing her knowledge. She taught me how to sketch, paint, mold, think, design, and the discipline of art. Amongst being a hybrid product of my parents, architecture is the perfect marriage between everything I have embodied from these experiences. Now, having completed my educational journey, I hope to take every aspect that has led myself to this point, forward and applied to my everyday life. With architecture and design, I hope to create spaces that can be culturally celebrated and egalitarian for all its users while constantly challenging its parameters as a catalyst for change and social responsibility. Aside from architecture, whether it’s hiking up the north shore mountains or biking along the seawall, with its effortless beauty and organic culture, I enjoy spending my free time outside.

Education

My studies began at the British Columbia Institute of Technology where I enrolled in the Architectural Building Technology program and received a Diploma specializing in the Building Science elective. Following the two-year program, I was offered a position into the Bachelor of Architectural Science, where I was able to exercise the conceptual and metaphysical realm that tightens the loose ends within the field architecture. Having now completed my Master of Architecture with the University of Calgary, I am ready to embark on work within the industry and apply my education towards the field.

Work Experience

Aside from my diverse vocational education, I had the opportunity to work in many architectural firms within the city of Vancouver. From design build projects to commercial and residential designs, I have the ability to work on various projects within varying scales. My work experience has been shared alongside Michael Green Architecture, Iredale Architecture, Gustavson Wylie Architects, and many more, each providing a nuanced take on architecture and its impact. Working with offices that specialize in a variety of projects with different workflows has shaped myself into young professional that is easily adaptable and hardworking.
