BE, MLA Candidate
Qiwei obtained his Bachelor’s degree in Landscape Architecture from Zhejiang A & F University in China and will be completing his MLA at the University of Toronto in 2018. Throughout his career he has gained experience in multiple scales of design ranging from regional strategic planning, urban design, ecological restoration to residential and streetscape design, including participating in the Area Development of Shanghai Disneyland Theme Park. With a sharp interest in post-industrial landscape, he has published essays under the sponsorship of Chinese National Training Program of Innovation and has received several design competition awards.
For Qiwei, landscape architecture is a discipline that should embed philosophical ideas into the landscape, better engaging the public with the spaces that make up their cities.
