BCSLA CSLA BA
Jingchan received a BA in Journalism in Beijing before relocating to Canada and earning both Master of Education and Master of Landscape Architecture degrees from the University of British Columbia. While her route to landscape architecture was circuitous, Jingchan feels she has ended up exactly where she always wanted to be. The landscape of her childhood was very industrial, which led her to have a great appreciation for natural areas. “From the time I learned of Canada’s amazing natural environment, I was captivated by the idea of urban and natural areas being in harmony,” she says.
As a landscape designer at PWL, Jingchan is excited to bring together her skills in communication, design, and analysis. She appreciates that landscape architecture can be both creative and a way of improving our built and natural environments. Outside of work, she enjoys films, good food, and snowboarding.
“To see a World in a grain of sand,
And a Heaven in a wild flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand,
And Eternity in an hour.” – William Blake
