My professional experience with international architectural practice is based in Beijing and Shenyang. Employment with design offices in these cities has given me the ability to serve well in teamwork situations and to communicate with clients. My academic programs have educated me to participate in both creative ideas and functional logic. I can cover job responsibilities from conceptual design (physical and digital models), to design development and working drawings. I have a basic knowledge of sustainability, integrative design and LEED guidelines, which I plan to further develop, if employed by your firm. Among my special interests – and as a result of my master’s thesis - I have explored how the interplay between spatial configurations and a psychological sense of belonging is of paramount importance in the design of urban housing and city spaces. I am also continuing to improve my software Revit and Grasshopper skills in my spare time.
I am an easy-going person and love travelling as well as photography. Making hand-craft is one of my favorites, thus I also enjoy making physical models during my professional experience. My hobbies and interests not only help in my professional works, but also in relax myself from the professional work then return with energy. I would like to help, and share what I know with you!
