New Urbanism is what drew Yina to JRDV. Her excitement continues to grow with the firm’s innovative approach to creating places that respond to their immediate urban design, social and economic contexts.
She has worked at JRDV since 2015 focusing particularly on large urban design, mixed-use and retail projects, often at a city scale.
Her distinct area of expertise is large complicated, fast moving and innovative projects.
Architecture’s distinct impact on its environment drives Yina’s commitment to deepen her understanding. Creating positive connections in communities through the built environment is her continuous pursuit.
