Assistant Landscape Designer

Owen joined BT+A in 2016 after completing his MLA at University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. Originally from China, he has a keen interest in the vernacular landscape, creating a sense of place through robust design approaches. This focus in his graduate studies was recognized with an Illinois ASLA student design honor award.

Prior to his studies in United States, he was raised in Canton, a port city northwest of Hong Kong. Intensive urban developments in that region offered him opportunities to participate in large scale landscape design projects from residential to urban renewal. His dedication to design and well-developed digital representation skills are a welcome contribution to the firm’s work.
