“One of my favorite and most memorable projects is Mead Valley Library. It’s located in my humble hometown of Perris, California, only a mile away from the middle school I attended. It has been highly praised by the community, won various awards, and become much more than a library. It is something my younger self would have only dreamed of, and I am grateful to have contributed to the design.”
