In the school, I have been well educated with the atmosphere of exploring volume and space between silence and light. I'm also trying to get close to the edge of architecture form with its own aesthetics and find out what it could do with human activity. I believe that the future of architecture will become the realm of algorithmic and parametric design. It leads me to continue my thesis with coding techniques such as Grasshopper and Python. I am proficient in generating forms with mesh in T-Spline and NURBS surface in Rhino. At the same time, the especially complicated form could be sculpted by using Z-Brush. As an architect, I always have the passion for translating those spaces and forms into architecture with Revit. I'm a quick learner and always willing to acquire knowledge as there are so many things unknown. Hope my experience and skills could meet the needs of the position and create great value for the company.
