Education 

University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA, US, MArch, School of Design

It is a one-year (two-semester) program intended for individuals who hold a five-year Bachelor of Architecture professional degree and seek to supplement, extend, or focus their previous education in architecture. My graduate study at the University of Pennsylvania has broadened my architectural vision and deepened my understanding of parametric design and explorative design.

Dalian University of Technology, Dalian Shi, CN, BArch, School of Architecture and Fine Arts

My five years of undergraduate study in architecture gave me a solid foundation of skills, such as construction methods, design processes and software applications. The combination of eastern and western thought has brought me much more inspiration for architecture and I firmly believe that this will be a valuable asset in my future as an architect.
