I am Jiajun Chen, an architecture student in MAAS program of USC. As an architecture student, the meaning of architectural design for me is to provide human a better life. Architecture is not all about an attractive appearance. A good architecture must serves human rather than being served by human. A comfortable interior space which is suitable to human’s behaviors is the most important element of a good architecture. For me, I will adhere to the concept of people-oriented design to give people a more convenient life. Recently, I am more interested in sustainable design and healthcare.

As an intern, I worked in gad China which is an architectural design company. And I served as an architecture design intern in design department. During the period of my internship, I participated in the projects of Dongziguan Affordable Housing and Yin Ju Jiang Nan. Dongziguan Affordable Housing won the Dezeen Awards 2018. Based on the internship, I learned related government policies and procedures of construction project. Through assisting those experienced architect, I got the difference of architecture design between a school and a real design company. In reality, We always need to get a balance point between existing limitation and our ideal concept.
