Phoebe Ou-Yang loved to draw houses as a child. Now, she creates building plans via Photoshop, Illustrator, and other programs as an architecture student at Pasadena City College.
“I knew I wanted to be an architect when I was young, I loved to draw little houses that I dreamt of living in. Looking back, I’ve learned a ton since joining the PCC Architecture Program. One of my first professor described architecture as a love hate relationship and I couldn’t agree more. It’s a field that takes years to learn and even when you think you’ve learned all there is about architecture, it doesn’t stop advancing. I’m constantly inspired by other architects and designers in various fields, I think we are very lucky to live in an age where we can easily find and reach a new artist. In the future I’d really love to collaborate with other visual artists and work at a well-known firm, I also wish to dabble in architectural photography someday.”
