Ying Luo

New Haven | Copenhagen

I’m a designer and maker who values inclusion and the environment. My research and design interests range from green building technology, materials, construction to public spaces and urban ecology. Currently I am pursuing my professional masters degree at Yale School of Architecture, during which I spent a summer in Italy and am now living and working in Copenhagen. When outside of office or studio, I can be seen on my bike or on a run. My comfortable places are my kitchen, my garden, or in my armchair by the window.
