I am always curious and eager to learn, question, and explore the world around me. With an educational background in both art and architecture, I can exercise logical and systematic thinking and think outside of the box with my creativity and innovation. 

My enthusiasm to experience life and attention to detail helps me better observe the way people enjoy their lives and understand how people communicate with space. As an architectural designer, I always strive to offer people more possibilities to interact with the environment.

Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, NY, US, MArch, Master of Architecture

Studying at Pratt Institute, I have a good sense of aesthetic visualization and cultural perception. Besides the requirement of architectural drawings, I think the magnificent visual expression, including renders and animations, helps clients understand the design, leading them to have immersive experiences in the project. Moreover, I have good time management, patience to improve the details, and the ability to comprehend instructors' opinions. My projects were exhibited in WAST[ED]: Living with Trash, an event in AIANY, which invited SOM, Pratt GAUD, NJIT College of Architecture and Design, and RE: Siding, Pratt GAUD exhibition. In addition, I am always interested in exploring technology and media to show art and architecture in creative ways. So, I can learn diverse skills quickly.
