Shao-Chen LuAssociate, Technical Designer
Where were you born?
I was born in Taiwan.
What is your area of expertise within architecture and design?
I have several years of experience in multi-family both in the US and Taiwan, and mostly concentrated in core and shell design.
What kind of projects do you want to work on (or technology you want to use) in the future?
I would like to work on different types of architecture such as multi-family, cultural, institutional, or hospitality. I was trained as an architect in Taiwan and learned urban design in the US, so it would be really fun if I can participate in some projects that combine my knowledge in these areas.
When did you know you wanted to be an architect/designer?
I knew I wanted to be an architect when I was in middle school. I remember when I was young, I was always sketching different kinds of imaginary buildings, and never focused in the class.
What is something you collect?
I collect vinyl records. I’m a “visual” person so it is mostly because of the record cover I like.
