Tyler Yuzhou Wang received a bachelor of architecture degree from Northeastern University in 2017 and recently graduated (2019) with a master of architecture degree from the University of Sydney. During his studies, he gained expertise in various architecture skills, such as operating innovative, industry-leading design software including Revit, Rhino, and Grasshopper. During Tyler’s most recent internship at HDR Inc., his skills secured a bid from Ball Aerospace in Denver, Colorado, for the design of its new laboratory.
Tyler's research and projects during his master's years focus on sustainability and energy-efficient building using parametric modeling, as well as design strategies that intend to highlight and restore cultural significance. Having lived in China, Ghana, the USA, Germany, and Australia, Tyler understands the importance of buildings and real estate as ways for nations to carry on their culture and traditions.
Tyler believes that a comprehensive architectural design is derived from a combination of many disciplines, and that both design and real estate development will impact future lifestyles. He is passionate about the MRED+D curriculum, which focuses on sustainability and resiliency, and is looking forward to sharing and exchanging his knowledge with other candidates from diverse backgrounds. Berkeley’s MRED+D program will strengthen his understanding of the interplay between design and real estate in an urban setting and will empower him to design in response to sustainable and political challenges.
