Hi, I am KANG! Architectual Designer, Assoc. AIA, LEED AP BD+C

I got my B.Arch degree from Central Academy of Fine Arts, and M.S from UCLA Entertainment Studio. As a cross-scale designer, I love everything about visual with aesthetic and informative expression.

I am interested in striking a balance between technology advancement and humanism, focusing on designs that are humancentric instead of machine centric. Mobility is a major subject of my concern. My experiences also influenced my perception of virtuality.
