Yu Fan (Ivan) Cheung
Having lived in cities around the world, Ivan not only speaks four languages, but he offers a global design perspective that enriches his work in the United States with his design experience in Hong Kong and China, and vice versa. With a deep appreciation of the diverse ways in which people inhabit urban spaces, Ivan helps shape GBBN’s design strategy to ensure that our projects contribute to vibrant, sustainable communities.
While helping lead the firm’s design mentorship program, Ivan works in all markets and project types, including the Andrew J Brady ICON Music Center, the award-winning Lake West Five Exhibition Hall, Beijing’s Zoo Tower, and a clinical prototype for Bon Secours Mercy Health that will be built across the Southeastern US. When not designing buildings, Ivan can be found nurturing his small, multilingual family.
