A recent graduate from North Carolina State University,holding both the Master of Architecture of North Carolina State University and the Bachelor of Engineering degree of Huazhong University of Science & Technology (Architecture Design Major).

I have been studying architecture for 7 years both in China and America. The academic life has endowed me with unique understanding towards building analysis, design and research techniques. Through these years, I developed the professional quality of an architect as well as the architecture business. Starting with the basic hand sketching skills to the modern parametric design and BIM, I have prepared myself with a variety of design methods. From design thinking, process presentation to on site construction, every course made me closer to a professional architect. In addition, because my parents are working in architectural and urban planning field, I better understand how important it is to play three roles during career practice---an excellent expert in architectural aspect, a well communicated team player toward other related professionals and a patient listener toward the client.

To practice and develop my knowledge, I devoted myself into designing and researching in and outside of campus. Through participation in conferences and exhibitions located in U.S, China, Germany, Italy as well as Czech and Austria, not only have I practiced my presentation skills, I also learn countless modern design trends. Moreover, from the information exchanging with the architects I met during these activities, repeatedly summarizing and explaining the Chinese architecture and city planning gives me more profound insight into the Chinese market.
My resume, which is in the attachment, provides additional information on my background and qualifications. You can also find more about my work in my online portfolio----WWW.GAOARCH.COM. If I can provide you with any further information on my background and qualifications, please let me know.
