Xue Bai


Hi, I'm Xue Bai (白雪), a first-year student in harvard GSD MLA-1 & MDes program.

I grew up in Hangzhou, a garden city in China, where I became really interested in Landscape. As for me, Landscape is a mirror of society, reflecting the needs of ordinary people, and it’s a tool for solving social problems and working towards social justice.
