Weiju Lai is a Design Team Member in Studio Gang’s Chicago office.

Juju was drawn to the collective nature of the Studio and its diverse engagement with the architecture, landscapes, and bodies of water all around us, an approach to the world that she brings to all aspects of her life and work. A Chicago resident for seven years, Juju considers Taipei her home. The Yang Ming Mountain and the night markets in Taiwan are among her favorite places to find peace and joy.
Juju holds a Master of Science in Advanced Architectural Design from Columbia University and a Bachelor of Architecture from Tung Hai University in Taiwan.
