Project Director Wei Jien (Taiwan) grew up in Brisbane, Australia. She is a registered Architect in Australian and earned a MA in Urban Design from Queensland University of Technology. Wei joined L'Observatoire Int. in 2012, as part of the team that worked with LVMH and their luxury retail projectsm. Wei's role evolved into a project lead and is responsible for a variety of project types and scale - such as Facebook offices with Gehry Partners, New York restaurant The Grill at the Seagram and various projects with Steven Holl Architects including the expansion at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, the Glassell School of Art and the Nancy and Rich Kinder building.
For Wei, the most rewarding and most challenging part, is finishing a project, “Focusing and final scene settings is when we see the concepts come to life. It can be a small project like the Frederic Malle perfume store in Greenwich Village or a large project like the REACH at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. - the result is a balance between science and art that is really magical.”
