We’d like to take the opportunity to introduce you to one of our Honorable mention winner for our “Legendary Bird Home 2020” competition - Keshen Liu from the United States.
Keshen Liu from United States
I received my B.Sc in Architecture Design from the School of Architecture at the University of Florida in 2016, followed by a few years of professional working experience in NYC. He is currently completing his M.Arch degree at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
I was the Project Architect/Manager for a single-family prefabricated house “Sharon Residence,” at Resolution: 4 Architecture in NYC, at which I led all the phases of design and construction documentations under the principal's guidance.
To me, architecture is this medium that mediates between us, other individuals, and nature. Thus, the role of an architect is to create the vessels that correspond and maintain the symbiotic relationship that accommodates adequately between humanity and the environment under various circumstances, challenges, and societal necessities.
Every once in a while, it’s good to pause and to put all your skills and knowledge to the test. It’s always beneficial to examine how much you have improved and to define or redefine your weaknesses. Plus, it’s fun. I treat it as a hobby.
It will be beneficial even if it’s painful or difficult.
