Xinran Li BA (hons) Arch
Xinran completed his BA in Architecture at the University of Liverpool. During his final year he explored the design possibility of new landmark and art buildings around the Albert Dock. The projects he designed were highly commended and he graduated with a first class degree. He went on to read an MPhil in Architecture and Urban Studies at Cambridge University where he pursed an interest in historical social housing in China. He investigated the architectural value, political ingredients and current status of the earliest high rise residential projects in Bejing and provided a holistic retrofit scheme to revive them.
Xinran appreciated delicate and artistic architectural design that can influence and resonate with its surrounding, social context and its inhabitants.
