Hui Yang


Having focused on healthcare architecture in her Master’s thesis, Hui joins TLCD with an enthusiasm for sinking her teeth into real project work. Her interest in design for patients and healers is rooted in her fascination with science, when she studied the influence of plants and nature on people during her undergraduate work in Zhejiang University’s Landscape Design program. Those scientific studies led to an interest in the interplay between human biology and the built environment.

Washington University’s graduate program in St. Louis was a perfect next step for Hui, where she obtained a dual Master’s degree in Architecture and Landscape Architecture. After working in Denver for almost a year on the early design phases of a major airport, she welcomes the opportunity to spend more time developing the craft of construction documents and specifications. With a couple of awesome mentors at TLCD, she is well on her way to rounding out an impressive set of design skills.

I enjoy exploring the concept of umwelt (the inter-relation of plants, animals and humans) on the trails and urban paths of Northern California.
