During my two years working experience in Arup Shanghai, I worked on large scale projects, schematic design, and competition. Under intensive working condition, I was in charge of producing the representative drawing and illustration of projects. Therefore, I’m confident with my techniques, drawing skill, workflow between CAD, Rhino and other programs.
As a recent graduate from the Berlage Institute, I have broaden my view on architecture across cultures. My thesis project, Rumour, is a research through design—By spreading persuasive architecture rumour of an un-existed Chinatown of Gibraltar, we can manipulate the public’s understanding the place. Thanks for this experience, I’ve learned critical theories and ideas in architecture and to work collectively with international team and professions toward the best outcome. My strength is challenging the impossibility and producing provocative/intriguing concept for project.
