Zheng, who specializes in life sciences, has a keen interest in the fusion of architecture and technology. At SGA he uses digital modeling to design facades and test the integration of different building components, which is especially important for complex laboratory facilities.
Zheng’s professional experience encompasses three internships: At Isgenuity in Boston he focused on architecture for healthcare. At Beijing-based Daipu Architects he worked on art exhibitions. And during his most recent internship at Adjaye Associates in New York City, he developed designs for museums.
Born and raised in Hangzhou, China, Zheng came to the U.S. to study, earning a Bachelor of Architecture from Syracuse University. His senior thesis focused on “transformable architecture.” This modern practice incorporates robotics, in which sensors gather information on user behavior, and structures adjust accordingly.
Outside of the office, Zheng enjoys coding, reading about architecture, and playing blues and rock on his guitar.
