New York, NY, US



My name is Tong Xiao. My architectural background consists of a combined eight years from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (M.Arch) and Tongji University (M.Arch & B.Arch). These institutions have helped me absorb a series of skills, from understanding geometries and conceptual graphs to analytical thinking using 2D graphics and 3D modeling using Rhino, Grasshopper, Maya and Adobe Suite. From my education, I had the opportunity to practice using parametric design tools with environmental analysis and simulation. In my thesis project, I built a full scale wind tunnel as a generative design tool which helped me develop professional interpersonal skills through interaction with consultants and clients; I also learned how to coordinate schedules between multiple departments. Additionally, I have work experience as an Intern Architect at One-Public Inc., and Arch-Union. While I was studying and working at Arch-Union, I gained fabrication skills, making installments and displays.
