Hanqing Zhao cares about the vast availability of meaning that rests in the indeterminacy of the human visual field when perceiving the natural and built environment. He believes the didactic meaning of such space and place can be perceived through concentration and distraction, and his study emphasizes the latter. Before returning to UC Berkeley, Hanqing practiced as a landscape designer for three years in the Bay Area; he worked at MSLA, TLS, and SWA Sausalito, primarily working on site-grading and later phases of domestic and international projects. He also worked in Japan, China, and Canada during school. Hanqing was born and raised in Northeastern China.
