Yi-Chun Lin, Associate AIA, NCARB

Senior Associate | Architecture

Yi-Chun is a transplant to Seattle by way of Taipei, San Diego, Spokane, London, and Pullman. For nearly a decade, she has been actively involved in the tableau of Seattle’s residential and commercial architecture, with additional national and international experience in civic, arts, and campus design. Yi-Chun’s career has spanned a diverse realm of architecture, landscape architecture, interior design, retail experience design, and marketing.

When thinking about what drives her work, she explains, “I am energized by the cross-disciplinary approach and its benefit to inform conceptual and technical possibilities. I value holistic design thinking, listening to understand, and prioritizing respect in relationships. The practice offers opportunities to encourage dialogues and collaborations with clients, teams, builders as well as officials to foster design leadership from feasibility through construction. I believe the making of any thoughtful place is rooted in trust-building with shared advocacy. The spatial elements, aesthetics and functionalities of architecture then emerge as authentic expressions of the collective design voice.”

Yi-Chun holds a Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies and a Bachelor of Architecture from Washington State University, with an emphasis on Urbanism through the Architectural Association in London. She is involved with Design In Public, WILD Women Design Leaders, and recently served with the AIA Advisory Group on Guides for Equitable Practice.

Outside of the studio, you will find Yi-Chun cruising on her e-bike with her family, practicing backsets in volleyball, cooking for many, and brewing fresh batches of Kombucha.
