"Design is a journey to find balance "
Growing up in a little town, Guilin, in the south of China, I was surrounded by its unique breath taking landscapes, which intrigued me deeply into developing my art skills from a very young age. After moving to Australia at the age of 14, I was lucky to have a resourceful school supplying me endless art materials, in which I discovered myself through paintings.
During my years in the Bartlett School of Architecture, where I completed my Part I, I challenged myself to explore a variety of tools and methods to express design ideas, from hand drawing to computer visualization, and from crafting physical models to testing forms through digital simulation. My studies prepared me well to start my architectural career with RPP.
Been welcomed by the friendly colleagues and various exciting ongoing projects scattered around the UK, I immediately found myself home at RPP. I am hoping in the upcoming year, as part of the team, I would contribute full-heartedly in building around people. And with the exposures to the techniques and aspects of architecture I have not yet dabbled, I would expand and advance my understanding in architecture towards my Part II studies.
Outside of the studio, I am a photographer, a world traveller. And my friends would often find me as the mixologist, the protein head, and a caffeine addict, which are all the ultimate ways for me to achieve the perfect work-life balance.
