Yicong (Eric) Wang

To Yicong, architecture “interacts intimately with living,” and he appreciates the ways design intersects with natural beauty in the world. Among his favorite architectural challenges have been helping with the Emerald Pavilion project and the Gaolizhuang project in Beijing. Yicong loves to travel the world—Mauritius is a new favorite spot—and to read, naming author Li Ao as his chief inspiration for persevering through life’s difficulties.
