I am ambidextrous. I often say I paint with my left hand and solve equations with my right hand. For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved art and science. Some may see these passions as contradictory. I see them as being in perfect harmony. Art captures beauty and science brings that beauty to life. My passion for art and science has inspired my love for architecture, a field that I’ve been pursuing for the last six years and will continue doing so in the rest of my life.

The world is moving in such fast pace that automation technology is quietly replacing human interactions. As a trade-off for industrial innovation, the bonding connection between human and machine is slowly weakened. The Dynamic Walk project is a bridge to re-connect the relationship, strengthen the human influence in a structure design, and re-engage human motions to enable mechanical mechanism without any use of automation device.

To me, creativity is infusing knowledge into my personal library, filling it with rhythm and inspiration from daily life.

Drawing helps me build that library.

As long as I am delving into my passion, I realize that the most exciting but also challenging part of architecture is defining the balance between art and science - form and function. In every project, I define and evaluate that balance in order to trigger ideas and discover its originality. I believe architects have the power to influence and construct the world they live in. At the same time, architects must take responsibility for enlightening people as they create useful works, fusing art and science.
