About 

Recently graduated from the University of Oregon with a bachelor degree of Architecture. The love of art and science, as well as growing up in a family in construction industry, brought me to architecture design. My design methodology has always been inspired by nature - from emulating breathing skin along the facade of a Lanzarote concert hall to the bee-hive inspired housing project, and to the nomadic skyscraper mimicking leaves falling from a tree. I am eager to bring that design passion and my knowledge in sustainability and construction to the built environment.

Education 

University of Oregon, Eugene, OR, US, Bachelors, Architecture

The Architecture school at the University of Oregon provides a credential bachelor degree and a well-rounded program that integrates all aspects of design. There is a strong emphasis on sustainable design, enclosure, structure, and construction detail. Except for the primary design studio courses, the program included three main categories: Design Theory (Architectural context, Human context, Professional context...); Design History; and Design technology (ECS, Structure 1&2, Building enclosure...). The methodology of the program encourages the students to be creative within the real-world practice, which is beneficial for transferring the design knowledge into design practice.
