Jesse, Tse-hsin Wu
Senior Design Architect
Jesse Wu is continuing a family legacy while creating his own as a laboratory planner. He comes from an artistic family and even followed his big brother's lead by studying engineering in college. Then, he also pursued a graduate degree in Architecture as his brother did. As Jesse points out, his occupation is "the perfect combination of art and engineering", allowing him to apply his scientific and structural knowledge to academic and research laboratory projects.
After joining SST Planners, an award-winning laboratory design firm, Jesse worked primarily as a design consultant on project teams that needed laboratory specialists such as Brown University-Hunter Lab, SUNY Stony Brook Medical and Research Translation Building and NASA Measurement System Laboratory. In 2015, SST Planners became part of Page, a multidisciplinary architecture and engineering design firm that wanted to elevate its laboratory planning service capabilities and Jesse became a Senior Design Architect.
Prior to SST Planners, Jesse worked as an architect for firms such as Rafael Vinoly and SHW (now Stantec) where he worked on all phases of project design and learned technical problem solving skills as well as the importance of research, knowledge transfer and collaboration. During this time, he was fortunate to work on and learn from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute Janelia Farm Campus, one of the biggest research and green roof projects in the nation.
