From my point of view, architecture should be defined as belonging. I think architects have an obligation to use spaces to give people a sense of involvement and promote communication between people.
Why did you choose Cornell and AAP?
At a young age, I was determined to major in Architecture, and I was drawn to Cornell University and AAP because of its high academic reputation, teaching quality, and learning environment. Moreover, I interviewed a senior student in our high school who was admitted to Cornell University and majored in interior design. When asking about the study atmosphere in the university, I was told that because the applicant pool is competitive, peers who are admitted to the university must have their own talents in certain areas. Being a person who needs others to push me to move forward, I believe my learning experience at Cornell will make me a better person.
What are your extracurricular interests and how have you incorporated them into your college life?
I am a fan of karate and like to make art in my spare time.
What do you hope to accomplish during your time at AAP and after graduation?
From my point of view, architecture should be defined as belonging. I think architects have an obligation to use spaces to give people a sense of involvement and promote communication between people. So I want to use the knowledge I learn in the university to alter current templates of residential buildings in China which currently limit interaction and engagement between people.
