Xinyi graduated with a Master of Architecture from the University of Western Australia in 2015 and has since worked as a designer on small to large-scale projects for firms in Australia, China, Japan, and Europe.
His varied international portfolio includes designs spanning nearly every sector — from homes to commercial building, sport venues and cultural projects — including the Shenzhen Science and Technology Museum, the Sydney Football Stadium Redevelopment, the STH BNK skyscraper in Melbourne, and a conceptual pavilion for the Serpentine Gallery in London’s Hyde Park.
Drawing on experience from differing contexts, perspectives, and styles, Xinyi continues to shape his approach to design, one that is largely centred on exploring a project’s possibilities. This allows Xinyi to find meaningful connections in both projects and contexts, giving him the space to form unique understandings and responses, and clearly communicate these to clients through expressive designs.
Alongside his work at Cumulus, Xinyi is a tutor of Architecture Technology at the University of Sydney where he has also been a guest lecturer on multiple occasions.
