I’m a recent graduate from Syracuse University with Master Degree of Architecture. In my opinion, I think great architecture design is the art of collage in the fields of space, material and structure, which is also inseparable from sustainability. As of myself, I have devoted my entire eight years of student career into the lovely field of Architecture, and I do believe with my creativity, professional skill and previous experience, in combine with my personal characteristics, positive attitude and a fast - learner, I could show great performance in the career of architecture.
