Mingyuk grew up in the concrete jungle of Hong Kong and lived in many large cities in the world. In her mid twenties, she moved to Vancouver, British Columbia, her current residence, where she first experienced and was immersed in nature’s power. Mingyuk practices architecture at Michael Green Architecture and is passionate about mass timber design and construction. Her hobbies include swimming, knitting, and Chinese calligraphy.
