Since joining Payette in 1996, Ching has devoted her efforts to healthcare practice and has led some of Payette’s major healthcare projects including new facilities, additions and interior renovations in various scales. In addition to healthcare planning and design, her passion is exploring exterior building envelopes, working with specific contexts and programs to complete a building’s total expression.
Ching believes there should be no boundaries in design between different project typologies. She believes a designer’s sensibility, ability to craft spaces and skills in problem-solving can be applied to all building types. From working with specific clients and programs to internal project teams, the highest performance is expected through her leadership.
Ching received her Bachelor of Architecture degree from Chinese Cultural University and a Master of Architecture degree in urban design at Chung Yuan Christian University in Taiwan. Her post-professional graduate degree from Yale School of Architectural was essential in freeing Ching from the norms and helping her to go beyond conventional boundaries.
