Wenye's background in architecture is born from her global reach and experience in multiple countries. With education and work experience in Australia, Germany, China, New York, and now Chicago, Wenye is able to draw on a range of knowledge to adapt to clients' needs.

Her production of graphical tasks such as schematic design and rendering is crucial to projects and the visual design representation that R+A communicates to clients. Wenye's knowledge of Building Information Modeling through REVIT strengthens R+A's commitment to real-time collaboration across disciplines and 3-D design vizualization. Wenye has experience across office, aviation, and public sector projects.
