From the past two years, I have been studied in University of Michigan’s M.Arch program. During the period, I expand my understandings of architecture, practicing projects in different scales and concerns, from residential housing programs to railways station. I also challenged myself with various techniques, from physical construction to parametric design, from robot assembling to programming. I expect my academic background and internship experience will offers the specific qualities that you are looking for a candidate.
