Los Angeles, CA, US



I am Jili Huang, an architect / computational designer living in Los Angeles. I graduated from the University of Southern California, Los Angeles M.Arch II Program. My interest lies in design computation, including BIM, parametric/ scripting, material and robotic research and intelligence fabrication.

I have working experience in both China and the US, for various offices such as Peddle Thorp Architects, JFAK & DLR Group. The difference in design has helped me to gain creative cross cultural ideas.

Besides working, I actively joined in competition and research. My works have been awarded prizes and published on websites such as "suckerPUNCH", ''Designboom", " PARAsite " and "(n)Certainties". Also, My work has been special featured in Los Angeles Downtown Artwalk. I am also the author of a digital display blog "PARA(noid)module ".

I am motivate and ambitious in design works. Also, being a team leader in various designs, I believe in the value of teamwork and coordination. I am looking forward to join in your network.
