Rapha Koren

As an Architectural Designer at UIC, I work on custom home projects from design through construction. Prior to joining UIC I worked for two years at Studio Daniel Libeskind in New York City and Pieratelli Architecture in Florence, Italy.

I am French and Israeli, and graduated from the Bezalel School of Art and Design in Jerusalem with a BArch degree. During my time at school I was very fortunate to spend semesters in Ahmedabad, India, and Paris France. Before university, I also served in the Israeli Air Force as an air traffic controller for three years.

Outside of work I spend my time rock climbing, biking, or in the wood shop working on my next furniture project.
