ABOUT TRAX

download cv

Formulating problems and locating problems articulates architecture: it is both sensitive and sensible in its unique spatial, social and cultural context. It deals with details, manipulates lights and distinguishes itself between introspective and retrospective spaces. I treasure these moments when space is transcended into meditation, light into peace, and the impossible into possible. I enjoy challenges and can organize my time effectively to develop a concept into a drawing, and a project into a design.

Yinan Wang (Trax) is a meticulous architectural and urban designer and a productive working machine. He received his Master of Architecture in Urban Design at Harvard University Graduate School of Design with Urban Design Thesis Prize, and his Bachelor of Architecture degree at Zhejiang University in Hangzhou, China.
