Hello !

My name is Shun Nien Miao 繆舜年  (b. 1994). I am a Taiwanese architectual designer, a 2020 Master of Architecture Graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (accredited by NAAB), with 3 year OPT STEM visa. My architectural interests range from the expression of materiality in design objects, to critical thinking about events, experiences and space. I believe it is an architectʼs responsibility to design through an equitable and open-minded process to best serve the community.
