Hello, my name is Qiuyi Bian. 

I studied Architecture in college and Urban Design at GSD.

With an associate degree in Biology, I'm always curious about areas beyond architecture and searching for this pedagogy's possible connections and boundaries.

Had a lot of fun studying architecture. I was also interested in interactions between human activities and architectural space.

I took biology as my associate degree because I was strongly interested in life science. The concept and knowledge I gained from biology strongly effected my design.
