Tian is an architectural designer who passionately explores the relationship between architecture, space, and people, focusing on micro-narratives and community communication. Through various mediums, Tian delves into the intricate connections between these elements, recognising the immense value and significance of even the most minor stories.
Tian completed their undergraduate studies in architecture at the University of Liverpool and has gained experience in all aspects of architectural practice, including pre-design, mid-construction, and post-project management.
Tian researched the profound impact of gentrification and urbanisation during their studies at RCA. Their exploration initially centred on migrant workers, shedding light on the often-overlooked narratives of this marginalised group. In their second-year project, Tian shifted their attention to rural inhabitants and settlements, emphasising the importance of understanding and supporting these communities within the broader framework of urban narratives. Tian's goal is to empower architects to champion and nurture these micro-narratives within the context of macro-narratives, contributing to the transformative potential of architecture in society.
