Get to know Ke

What is a project you are proud to have worked on?

The Sovereign in Buckhead, Atlanta, Georgia. I was the project architect for this project. It’s a 49-story highrise building, one of the tallest buildings in that area. I’ll never forget the jaw-dropping moment from the structural engineer when we said we were thinking of having a swimming pool at the very top of the building.

What is the best part of your job?

Every project is different and has its own challenges.

What is your advice to young professionals in your field?

Life is a continuous learning process. Don’t stop challenging yourself.
