Mai is a Part II Architectural Assistant and joined JTP after completing her Master of Architecture degree at the University of Westminster, where her final dissertation focussed on stitching communities back together through the use of public space.

She has experience across a broad range of sectors and scales of projects, including schools, healthcare centres, residential masterplans and also private residential projects. Since joining JTP, Mai has been involved with some of JTP’s projects in Russia including a holiday resort and a residential masterplan.

Mai has a passion for sustainable architecture and projects with a positive social impact. Her final design thesis at university was a banana textiles factory based in Ecuador which was built from the industry's waste products and converted banana trunks into useful fibres to be used in the making of textiles.

Outside of work, Mai likes to stay active and enjoys running, cycling, walking and tap dancing! She also loves to cook and bake and has recently started learning Spanish.
