Steven Holl’s project ‘Vanke headquarters Shenzhen’ captivated Yan, it was the first project that Yan looked upon and ‘understood architecture’, from there it was all guns blazing for Yan. Having studied at QUT, Yan is no stranger to subtropical architecture but his recent visit to Singapore open his eyes to a whole new world of what is possible within the architectural profession. Yan is excited to see which direction the profession will head with the implication of New technology including 3D printing – ‘Architecture is always changing, with new technology I am interested to see where it’ll lead the discipline’.
Yan enjoys long walks on the beach … literally! He loves exploring Brisbane and its surrounding when not studying or helping meet deadlines at Red Door. Throughout his travels, China is the place that has captivated Yan with its enormous amounts of new, different buildings currently being developed.
