Zhiwei has a clear idea of the work he strives to achieve in landscape architecture: “My responsibility is to improve livable spaces without interrupting the balance of the environment.” Originally from Guangzhou, China, Zhiwei enjoys traveling, music, and soccer.
Following studies in Urban Planning at Sun Yat-Sen University in China, Zhiwei intended to continue his education in urban design and architecture when he stumbled upon landscape architecture almost accidentally. When he realized the contributions that the field could make to complex environmental and social issues, he determined to pursue a career as a landscape architect, obtaining a Master of Landscape Architecture from the University of British Columbia.
Zhiwei contributes his skills in design and drafting to his projects at PWL, and is especially excited to contribute to sustainable and urban redevelopment projects. This work, combined with his travels in the Pacific Northwest, are going a long way towards making him feel at home in this part of the world.
