Ivy Chan

Hi my name is Ivy Chan and I'm from New York originally. I did my undergrad in architecture at Savannah College of Art and Design, and I am currently in the third year of the M.Arch program at GSAPP.
What interests me most about architecture is the details, materiality, the human experience, and the design is driven by the site and context of which it is placed. I love cooking, photography, and I live by the quote "always do what you are afraid to.
