Yi-Chang Liao

Project Architect II

Yi-Chang grew up living in and helping to maintain a mountain cabin with his father. This experience led him to pursue structure and architecture. Now a Project Architect II in CSHQA’s Boise office he is involved with design, documentation, and coordination of all aspects of a project from schematic design through construction administration. Simplistic design and well-thought-out detail inspire Yi. He finds collaboration with a talented team and effective communication between all parties especially important.
