About Yingchen Lang, LEED GA

She earned a Master of Landscape Architecture from the Harvard Graduate School of Design and a Bachelor of Architecture from Beijing University of Civil Engineering and Architecture. With a background in both architecture and landscape architecture, Yingchen is a Designer who possesses a keen interest in harmoniously blending plants and natural materials with structures and infrastructure systems.

Her strong visual arts background complements her impressive technical skillset, making her a valuable team member in early project development. Before she returned to OJB, Yingchen worked as an instructor and explored her early design pedagogy in the 2023 GSD Design Discovery summer program.
