Eva Chiu studied at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, followed by a Masters of Architecture at the Graduate School of Design Harvard University. Upon graduation, Eva travelled with a Fulbright scholarship to Hong Kong to study its unique urban condition. Eva’s focus on urban spaces continued with design of large-scale, mixed-use complexes at the offices of Richard Meier (NY) and Skidmore Ownings and Merrill (SF) with a brief teaching appointment at the University of California Berkeley. Currently, Eva runs her own practice with partner Antonio Lao, focusing on smaller-scale urban development and custom homes around the Bay Area. As the first-year studio coordinator, Eva focuses on students building a solid foundation and understanding of spatial and formal order through material manipulations.
