Education

I have focused my core undergraduate thesis experience on the technical aspects of design. My thesis title was “a sustainable prototype in the Southern California”. My mentor Wes Jones inspired me to imagine design as the integration of multiple ideas in succinct and accessible methodologies. My planned research topic during my master study would be continuing my study of sustainable prototype and prefabrication architecture. I would like to integrate BIM technology to prototype design and development an optimize solution to the contemporary issues in global urbanization. Moreover, I look forward to expand this design approach to high density and commercial driven societies such as China, Russia, and South Africa to rise up urban awareness via architecture. It would be my vision to apply my architectural passion to response to complex political issues and to raise up urban awareness via architecture.
