Diana Yu is an Associate at ADAM Architecture and has been working in Winchester since 2013. She graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a Bachelor of Architecture degree specialising in classical and traditional design. She spent her third year living in Rome, Italy, studying its extensive collection of historic classical buildings and understanding as a designer how incredibly flexible, adaptable, and creative classicism can be.
She was born and raised in Dallas, Texas which was very much part of the fast growth, automobile-focused, suburban lifestyle. Her education and career are in some ways is a reaction against the urban and architectural principles which dictated Texas suburban sprawl.
Diana has a strong interest in sustainability, vernacular architecture, and history. In her free time she enjoys traveling, sketching, boxing, and cycling.
