Virginia Bailey

Architectural Designer, Assistant Planner

Ms. Bailey graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Oregon in 2019 with a Bachelor of Architecture degree and minors in Interior Architecture and French. She was an intern at The Urban Collaborative for almost two years during her studies before joining as a full-time team member. Virginia works as an architectural designer and assistant planner, working on projects primarily in Europe, Asia, and the United States. She has knowledge of different programs, such as Revit, Enscape, Adobe, and CADD, that allow her to specialize in developing designs ranging from large-scale area plans to renderings of detailed interior spaces. She has served as the Technical Lead on projects, which requires overall leadership, organization, and document development skills. Specializing in sustainable design, Virginia became a Certified Passive House Consultant (CPHC) in the spring of 2018 and has used that education in the professional world to consult those who wish to build their homes to a higher-efficiency standard. She was a teaching assistant for the Passive House and Environmental Control Systems courses offered at the University of Oregon.

Virginia has always been inspired to travel. Having studied as an exchange student in France for a year of high school, in college she studied kinetic architecture in Vancouver, British Columbia. There she learned animation and increased 3D modeling skills to add to her growing knowledge of rendering, hand and digital media, and graphic design. She loves the opportunity to continue traveling and honing those skills as part of her professional life. She is also on the path to obtaining her architecture license.
