Mengyi (Lucy) Li
Lucy is interested in high-density, mixed-use environments, bringing culturally sensitive and sustainably sound design work to the future users of a community. As a designer, she believes that the first moments of experiencing a site are crucial and unique because each encounter reveals information about the context, people, and sense of place. Concerned with the intersection of climate, population growth, and rapid urbanization, Lucy works to pursue healthy living environments for all people. One of her favourite places is Chongqing, China, because as another lush, florid mountain city, it feels like a 3D fantasy experience coming to life. In her spare time, she likes to search out pet-friendly plants and play with her cat and participates in interdisciplinary design competitions to explore the potential of future design.
