My name is Sophie Weston Chien and I am a spatial maker, strategic thinker and community activator. I am interested in creating equitable spaces embedded in policy and infrastructure for global practice in local communities.
I am rising 5th year studying Architecture at Rhode Island School of Design, with concentrations in Nature, Culture, and Sustainability Studies and Politics and Policy, supported as an AIA Diversity Advancement Scholar. I have experience working in federal and municipal government, nonprofits, and institutional engagement with design firms and community partners. I have interned with op.AL in Rome, Oualalou + Choi in Paris, and will be at LA-Mås in Los Angeles this summer.
Everything and everyone is connected, and I love spending my life figuring out how and why that matters, and for whom.
