My name is Mariana Pickering. I’m an architectural designer, a LEED Accredited Professional and Emu’s website administrator. My role within Emu Architects covers a wide range of activities, including concept renderings, preliminary architectural design, and selection of finishes. I have a specialty in LEED Building Design and Construction projects, and will soon be focusing on an Italian-specific GBC Home accreditation. I have the pleasure of pursuing some of our more innovative design research paths (such as green roofs and xeriscaping). Lastly, I am also responsible for creating and maintaining this website, as well as our other forms of publicity, both on and offline.
