With my past academic and professional experiences, I worked on a variety of cultural, residential, mixed-used commercial, educational, and urban planning projects. In these projects, I have the experience of designing simple yet playful and efficient community spaces; I raised the awareness of paying attention to details as well as how individuals relate to broad context. I also gain the knowledge of using a variety of software including Revit, AutoCAD, and others identified in my CV. I am also good at physical model making and preparing presentation materials.
