Quotes[edit]

""I grew up in Taipei in the 1960s, so I was used to seeing tall buildings, but the architectural landscapes I saw in Chicago and New York were dazzling—and so diverse. Seeing these was a magical experience."

"As a Chinese architect trained in the United States, I'm especially interested in architecture that synthesizes Western and Eastern cultures."

"It's rewarding to conceptualize a design that serves not only the client but also represents the culture and serves the needs of a building's inhabitants."
