About 

My name is Anna, an architect with a passion of object design. I have had four years of work experience in architecture, interior design and construction.

In my professional capacity, I have worked on all stages of a project, from the concept origination to
construction supervision. In particular, I have had recent, hands-on experience in construction
detailing, negotiation with project managers/builders, interior design, site inspection and delivering
documentation under demanding deadlines. My experience in project types includes mixed-use high
rise competition work, luxury single family residential and heritage-commercial integration. I am
fluent in Chinese and am fast to adapt to new systems and software.

Aside from work, I am a sketch artist, object creator and an explorer of new things. From kitchen
ceramics, to furniture and lighting – I am a maker as well as a designer. For example, I designed and
constructed the competition-winning pavilion at the iconic Sculpture by the Sea exhibition in Sydney.

My key strengths are that I bring an enthusiastic attitude, I am willing to learn and I am a devoted worker. Problem solver, focused and efficient.
