As a child growing up in Shanghai, China, Ying spent summers in his grandpa’s construction company learning how things work together and sometimes how they don’t. Seeing the transformation from a dusty shell to a beautiful space was exhilarating and inspired him to become an architect. Ying graduated from the University of Texas - Arlington with a Bachelor of Science in Architecture. Prior to graduate school Ying worked as a visual artist for an animation company. In his free time, he explores form and function through drawing, model making and lighting design. At MF Architecture, Ying values the firm’s dedication to creating architecture that emphasizes context, craft and environmental responsibility.
