Dami Lee is an amazing content creator who is one of the first content creators to innovate architectural content on YouTube.

Armed with extensive knowledge of architecture and a passion for captivating narratives, Dami Lee embarked on a journey that seamlessly intertwines the complexities of architectural concepts with the artistry of video production.

Dami Lee was able to amass a shockingly big subscriber count of 1.52 million. For a really niche topic on YouTube to create content for, she somehow managed to pull it off.

But who is Dami Lee, what did she do before YouTube and what does she have planned for the future of her career?

Dami’s Youth

Hailing from Seoul, South Korea, Dami’s early years were marked by a mosaic of cultural experiences. 

Her family’s nomadic lifestyle, traversing continents from San Jose to Frankfurt, before finally settling in Vancouver, instilled in her a deep appreciation for diversity. 

Grappling with the challenges of adaptation and language barriers, Dami found solace in creativity, channelling her energy into drawing, music, and origami.

Why’d Dami Choose Architecture School?

Well, Dami didn’t even know she wanted to attend architecture school.

Dami was initially unsure about architecture school and didn’t even know too much about architecture, but in her first week of school, her mind was set on staying in architecture school.

The serendipitous allure of architecture beckoned to Dami during her formative years at Ryerson University. 

As Dami delved deeper, she was grateful that she ended up going to Ryerson


That is because Ryerson University was where she found a harmonious blend of theoretical underpinnings and practical insights that would later serve as the foundation for her future endeavours.

Dami’s Life Before Being A YouTuber & What She Learned

Dami’s professional journey led her through a multitude of architectural firms, each contributing to her growth as a visionary leader and content creator. 

From FaulknerBrowns Architects to Cutler and MIZA, Dami honed her skills as a project lead, and a freelance worker, imbibing the invaluable lessons she learnt along the way. 

During Dami’s professional career, she had the privilege of working with people with this unique ability to ignite excitement for a project, even for the smallest projects that may seem unimportant to others.

This unique ability of theirs, however, was not always coming from their expertise or their years of experience in architecture but had more to do with their inspiring communication style.

Dami feels that those who work in this industry are introverts and pragmatists, which are great traits for an architect because that makes them more technical and detail-oriented

However, Dami thinks that the ability to energise and inspire people is also a great asset. 

Dami said that ultimately her biggest lesson was that the best outcomes often come from being able to inspire people, not telling them exactly what to do, and that true inspiration transcends mere instruction but from the way a story was told.

Witnessing the transformative power of compelling narratives, Dami embarked on a mission to ignite passion and curiosity within her team and clients alike.

Dami would captivate audiences with its eclectic blend of topics viewed through the lens of architecture. 

With meticulous research and boundless creativity, Dami and her team crafted narratives that illuminate even the most esoteric architectural concepts.

Even educating those with no architectural background about architects and the poetic meaning behind a building’s architecture.

The YouTube channel quickly became how Dami’s clients reached out to her and her team, and how they have been able to connect with inspiring thought leaders, creating a great symbiotic relationship between the two sides of her business.
