Tiffany Wu is an architecture student at Rice University. She grew up in New York and graduated from Syosset High School. She is an avid enthusiast of art, design, food, and travel.
Tiffany’s experiences include leading human-centered design projects, entrepreneurship initiatives, cultural activities, and community volunteer work. During her high school years, she has attended courses at the Parsons School of Design Pre-College Academy. She is also an alumna of the ACE Mentor Program at H2M architects + engineers. She has won the Long Island Arts Alliance 2019-2020 Scholar Artist award, President’s Volunteer Service Awards, and Scholastic Art & Writing Awards.
As a creator, Tiffany finds excitement in the known and thrill in the unknown. She is fascinated by how architecture pushes the boundaries of what is possible, transcends across many disciplines, and actively shapes the dynamics of the human experience throughout time. Tiffany strives to become an architect who discovers limitless ways to redefine space for never-ending improvement, making them ideal for the intersections of people and the collection of stories they carry with them. She is grateful for the Architects Foundation’s support in her architecture journey.
