“ I am currently a graduate student in the MLA program at the University of Pennsylvania. Before coming to the US, I worked as an architect in China and attained a Bachelor of Architecture degree at Zhejiang University.
I grew up in the Chinese metropolis Chongqing, nicknamed “Mountain City.” It is located in the mountains on the upstream of the Yangtze River with spectacular urban and natural juxtapositions. These twisting images of my childhood heightened my awareness of how human beings live and overlap with nature.
After several years of studying and working in the architecture field combined with memories of my Mountain City, I realized the gap between nature and human structure. The challenges in their integration lead me to pursue landscape urbanism with a new perspective and with my own approach to the urban issue.”
