Joel Mbala-Nkanga, MArch '18
Architectural designer Joel Mbala-Nkanga remembers falling in love with the art and design of Dragon Ball Z while growing up in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Gabon.
“I was really big into drawing manga and anime,” said Mbala-Nkanga. Today, he applies his design skills to large-scale collaborative projects such as the stadium expansion at the University of Texas with the global architecture firm Populous. The School of Architecture & Design primed Mbala-Nkanga for team projects.
“Everyone here wants to help you and share work, which fosters a very strong collaborative environment,” he said. “Collaboration is a huge part of what I do now.”
