Amber Yuheng Zhu
Yuheng Zhu is a B.Arch graduate from Cornell University. She is interested in the potential of architectural visualization as a storytelling medium, and the architectural and social consequence of technological innovation to the urban environment.
To her, architecture endeavors to create spatial conditions that transform the lives of inhabitants, and consequently to transform urban paradigms. Architects and urban designers have the capacity and responsibility to promote alternative and better urban futures, through active cross-disciplinary dialogues.
As an architect, she believes that meticulous attention to detail and empathy with users is indispensable to a rigorous design.
She is always fervent to take challenges and determined to push her work to another level. As a team-oriented designer, she always contributes to her team with disciplined work ethics, productive discussions, and comfortable with consistent iterations.
She also loves travelling - she has been to more than 20 countries, and is planning for more trips in the future! :)
