Landscape Designer

As a designer filled with curiosity and passion, I believe each piece of landscape has its own story which is worth appreciating. Due to this concept, seeking and developing the emotional and rational connection to the land are the fundamentals of my design theory. With experimental attempts and varies technology and media applications, my design is the innovative expression of hidden potentials which belong to the ecological and cultural environment. My works range from detail design, site design to place making projects, urban design and regional planning projects. In the journey of exploration, I truly enjoy the beauty of sense and sensibility in design process.
