I am right now doing my thesis to complete the degree of Bachelor of Architecture at Syracuse University. My thesis is about how the opposition of the Spectacle and the Carnivalesque plays out in Florence, Italy with an iconic image the city tries to preserve to maintain tourist attractions, which as a result, both tourism and local residents are oppressed. I did internship in China and Italy; I have been involved with projects of different program and size and have worked on different tasks from detailed architectural drawings to 3D modelling to producing physical models. I am seeking job opportunities in the United States that would allow me to further advance my career experience after graduation.
