Quackenbush Architects + Planners welcomes Jueminsi Wu, Associate AIA, to the firm as intern architect.

Wu, a native of Wuhan, China, is a recent graduate of the Clemson University Master of Landscape Architecture program. She completed her Bachelor of Architecture at the Suzhou University of Science and Technology in Suzhou, China.

Prior to her graduate program, Wu worked as an assistant designer and intern architect at the Wuhan, Hubei, China, firm of Central-South Architectural Design Institute Company, Ltd., where she focused on land planning, conceptual design, construction drawing, and remodeling and rendering. She prepared graphic representations of plans using computer-aided design and drafting software.

Wu won a number of awards while a student, including the American Society of Landscape Architects Merit Award from the Clemson Department of Landscape Architecture, and merit and student leadership awards during her undergraduate study.

While completing her master’s, Wu worked on a student team to advise a local neighborhood on re-imagining the community park to include a waterfront design and greenways. Her master’s thesis also used these concepts by focusing on ways to develop connections between urban environments and landscape.

Wu says she has always been fascinated with how to make architecture blend in more with nature. “Where I grew up, there is a massive change in how the whole city is growing—and the city is growing rapidly,” she says. “But there have to be solutions to make this growth more sensitive to the surrounding natural elements and local culture.”

In her position at Q+, Wu will work with her colleagues on the renovation of Richardson Science Hall at Presbyterian College, a 240-acre campus in Clinton, SC.

“We’re excited to have Jueminsi and her talents here at Q+ ,” President Doug Quackenbush says. “Her abilities in landscape design add value to what our full-service firm is focused on—bringing innovative design and regional understanding to our clients and community.”
