The AIA Architects League of Northern New Jersey recognized Anna for her dedicated service to the Emerging Professionals and for coordination of League events.
Anna completed her Bachelor of Architecture degree from the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc), with an additional background in graphic design. She believes that architecture should be built to serve the people who need it, use it and live in it. Growing up in Taiwan with her grandparents has cultivated a passion for senior living and healthcare design; and having attended a number of schools at a young age, she is also very interested in educational projects. Trained at SCI-Arc in parametric design and organic form, her loves include challenging all scales of design with different tools, technologies, and materials.
Fluent in English, Chinese and Japanese, Anna is fascinated by Chinese and Japanese culture and design. She would like to develop a more environmentally-friendly design approach in continuing the evolution of her personal cultural upbringing. Anna enjoys solitary re-charging adventures as well as hanging out with friends. In her free time, she likes reading, singing, drawing, watching stage plays and anime, and — most importantly — the pursuit of delicious food.
