I am a recent graduate from the M.Arch program at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor. I consider myself a practical environmentalist. I believe the practice of architecture is one of the most direct ways of touching people’s lives and a powerful way of changing the world for the better. I am interested in building sustainability, building performance design, building systems, and construction management.

KALEIDOSCOPIC BOUQUET 15F FLOOR PLAN 1/16” = 1’ - 0”

As architectural decoration emerges as a paradigm of architectural discourse further exploring the relationship between form and function. While Nina Rappaport argued for the Deep Decorations as decorations with structural functions. The Kaileidoscopic Bouquet would like to explore the depth of architectural decoration as intrinsic values and spatial qualities. The goal is to create atmospheric space evoking kaileidoscopic mood and feelings with the designed bouquet. The design started with arranging the void spaces on pieces of flat material. After cutting the holes from flat pieces the patterns were generated. As an effort to transform these flat patterns into architectural entities, a system was developed where the patterns would be transformed into three-dimensional cells. The cells were then composed into clusters of three. The form of the cluster composition not only enhances the strength of the triangulated shaped cells, but also created the dynamic scales for the final compositions The clusters are carefully arranged into a bouquet that occupies the space of the UN Headquarters located in New York City. The bouquet composition itself is based on the technique of connecting the solid faces in the clusters and creating more triangulated space. The arrangement implanted in the UN Headquarters challenges the simple repetition of elements in modern architectural design. The arrangement process includes consciously selecting the species in space, carefully studying the scale of the cells in the space, and placing the clusters to create the final composition, the Kaleidoscopic Bouquet.

_02 Chaohu Middle School Location: Chaohu, China Date: June 2015 Intern at VolumeOne Design Studio Supervisors: Lars Graebner, Christina Hanson The new Chaohu Middle School in the South of the Economic District of Chaohu City is located on a four-hectare site and will offer an innovative educational environment for 36 classes. The goal of the design strategy is to create a stimulating learning environment by taking advantage of the topography of the spatial layout of the building. The public outdoor areas, to balance the interior structure used for classroom learning, are invigorated with dynamic elements, including green slopes, terraces, and courtyards, to provide recreation and active learning spaces. This project was produced during a transitional time of VolumeOne Studio. As one of the most experienced interns, I led a team of five interns to develop the initial scheme, starting from code research to form design, facade design, landscape plan, and campus planning under the instructions of the supervisors.

_03 Anhui University of Technology Location: Ma’anshan, China Date: June 2015 Intern at VolumeOne Design Studio Supervisors: Lars Graebner, Christina Hanson The new campus of Anhui Technology University will attract 15,000 students in the Fall of 2016. The 67.76 hectare new campus sought a campus plan that could not only offer a modern academic environment for its growing student body, but also realize a future-oriented vision of an interactive and sustainable campus. The design results are strongly influenced by the existing topography and water systems of the area. This project was my first one at VolumeOne and my first campus plan project of this scale. I conducted the initial code research and the landscape and plants research, assisted the project architect to develop the landscape plan, and developed the diagrams for the landscape design concepts. After the initial campus master plan was accepted by the client, I developed the program plan and the façade design for the classroom buildings, exhibition center, and auditorium for the final construction documents.

Campus Plan


300 Huron was a part of the Ann Arbor downtown housing development studio project. The site is across the street from the Ann Arbor City Hall. The goal of this design is to provide quality living spaces for local people in order to increase the density and diversity in the downtown area.

_04 300 Huron

Realizing this goal, the design of 300 Huron composes of five parts: the north tower with bigger and luxury floor plans, targeting more high-end clients with bigger families to move in from their suburban homes; the west tower with more condensed floor plans; a public garden on the ground floor with a civil wedding hall; three private gardens; and retail stores alongside the street. With the design, we strove to provide quality housing and private spaces for different groups of residents while creating an urban corner that celebrates the culture and diversity of Ann Arbor.

_05 The Hearth Location: Custer, SD Date: August 2011 Real Architecture Workshop Instructor: Paul Neseth


The Hearth is located in the woods of the black hills in Custer, South Dakota. It serves as the central gathering space for Circle Z basecamp. Visitors will gather to prepare food, relax, and sleep. The final design consists of three structures—a kitchen, a gathering lounge, and a camp wood shed. A team of 13 students and three architects designed and constructed the complex in two weeks from ground up. Both buildings are half-open structures that provides the campers with the experience of wilderness while sheltering them from the weather. The kitchen is designed with plenty storage spaces that could be locked up when not in use. The buildings are built with local wood, slate, and stones. The two buildings are connected to each other while both facing the fireplace and the mountains to the south.
