Founding partner of Pathways, Pathways
Wu Jiayin is a founding partner of Acts and Pathways, her multidisciplinary design background has pushed her to explore a form of spatial design that differs from traditional architectural practices, in the sense that she is not obsessed with any given paradigm nor is she confined to classic structures or materials. Her interest lies in the spatial relationship that people’s daily lives have with the urban spaces in today’s ever globalized world. By focusing on people's psychological states and dispositions her design pays acute attention to existing social issues and conveys her personal feelings. Wu Jiayin received her BA in Design at China Academy of Art in Hangzhou, and her MA in Narrative Environments at Central Saint Martins in London. In 2018, she established Acts and Pathways in Shanghai with curator and artist Wang Yiquan.
