“He that travels far, knows much”. Stanley’s living and travelling experiences from Asia, Europe and America enabled him to develop a deep understanding of the relationship between people and architecture. From the influence of his dynamic, concept-centric Bachelor Degree in London to the professional experience of Hong Kong, he has cultivated a sense elevated contextual awareness. Stanley imbues his designs with a strong emphasis on narrative, user-oriented experience and emotional connection between people and the built environment.
During Stanley’s time at SCAD, he established himself with a unique architectural visualization language and communication skills that reflect his in-depth conceptualization of his work. His thesis project was acknowledged by awards such as the Dean’s Award for Outstanding Graduate Thesis in Architecture, Student’s Choice Graduate Thesis Project, and received an award of Merit from the 2019 AIA Georgia Design and Honor Awards.
