Jae Yeong Yang
The attraction of transforming abstract idea into visual and tangible space, led Jae Yeong to explore architecture after his study for Biology in college years. From his first practical experience to build a sense of designing family housing scale in Anderson Architecture in San Francisco, he has widened his spectrum of architectural design experiences through Gensler and SLCE Architects.
While his experience in Gensler, San Francisco, he has contributed to creating design schemes for spec office campus projects in San Jose as well as high-end mixed use towers in Hawaii. After joining SLCE Architects, New York, he has created conceptual idea and schematic strategy for high-rise residential towers in New York and New Jersey area. The 54-story residential tower at 43-22 Queens Street in Long Island City, designed with his schematic ideas, is currently under construction, and he has taken a main role to explore schematic strategies for master plan of residential tower complex on Journal Square, New Jersey until his joining Shinberg Levinas Architectural Design.
At Shinberg.Levinas, Jae has contributed to school projects, including DC Prep at V Street SE Elementary School - a 20,000 sf renovation & 30,000 sf new construction in an historic district on a very challenging site and the Feasibility Study of DC Prep Hillcrest Elementary School.
His desire for improving width and depth of architectural design practice, made him to have a new journey with Shinberg Levinas Architectural Design. He continues his architectural journey to become a matured architect capable of suggesting an ideal balance of designing space.
He has a M.Arch degree from University of California, Berkeley, and a B.S. in Life Science from Sogang University, Seoul, Korea.
