Yue Hu

Landscape Designer


Passionate about developing design narratives and exploring a range of urban contexts, Yue joins Starr Whitehouse after receiving her MLA from the University of Pennsylvania. She has interned at BIG Copenhagen, TLS Shanghai, and Ramboll Studio Dreiseitl, during which time she had the opportunity to design across regions and scales.

Before studying at UPenn, Yue received her Bachelor’s of Engineering from South China University of Technology, where she majored in urban design and studied the relationship between buildings, the public realm, and the urban context. While studying and traveling in China, she was fascinated by the neglected but vibrant villages in Chinese metropolitan areas. She is looking forward to exploring similar situations in different cultural contexts around New York City.
