Constructed Environments

A cross-cultural and interdisciplinary approach is the focus of Ying's research, teaching, and practice in Landscape and Urban Design. This enthusiasm came from her early childhood education in Music and Classical Chinese Poetry. As the First Chinese Course Leader in Landscape Architecture in the UK since the Landscape Institute founded in 1929. Ying believes that she has the responsibility to carry forward the spirit of Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe and contribute to making Landscape Architecture as the most Comprehensive of the Arts in the 21st century.

Constructed Environments

I am inspired by world-class landscape architects and academics (i.e., Pietro Porcinai, Roberto Burle Marx and Ian McHarg) that have motivated me to pursue this career, and I wish to inspire, reach, and continue to motivate past, present, and future students.

Design

My teaching addresses the contemporary circumstances in which art, design and visual communication are situated. I support our students to develop skills that combine research with practice, to think critically and inventively about their discipline of study, and to see further into their own creative futures.
