I am Mengzhen Xu, a fresh graduate architect. Inspired by the fascinated building structures, I have involved myself in multiple design projects during academic study, including residential housing, public and educational facilities, and conceptual architecture. In terms of customer-oriented design, I have been working in Tongji Architectural Design & Research Institute and Home-link Real Estate company, providing interdisciplinary and valuable insights for our customers through design works. I believe as a designer, we have to see and feel as much as we can. I have been studying and working across different continents and I hope to start my career with you.
