XIAO Li, holds a Bachelor of Science in the Field of Urban Planning from Beijing University of Civil Engineering and Architecture (2013) and a Master of Architecture Degree from Pratt Institute Graduate School of Architecture and Urban Design, NY (2017).

Xiao’s study at Pratt includes architecture history and theory; multi-media representation; conceptual design practice and 3D modeling. He has worked as both architectural designer and urban designer at international architecture firms such as AECOM and Aedas in Beijing. His professional experience ranges from residential and commercial projects to international competition entries and urban design.

Xiao Li is a LEED Accredited Professional.

With  a multicultural background, Xiao believes it is the role of a designer to harness the understanding of the cultural and contextual intricacies, and climate in the interpretation of space, form, and order into design. Architecture must speak to the belief, values, and traditions of the people who inhabit it and be an outward expression of internal feeling and need. He believes international and multicultural sense of globalism will give architects the strength to have multi-perspective views inspiring powerful design.
