Growing up in Tieling, a city in northeastern China known for its ice and snow in the winter, Gigi remembers being fascinated by the ice-covered trees and enjoying winter sports like skiing and ice skating. However, it was her visit to Tokyo, Japan, that truly left an indelible mark on her. Gigi was captivated by the city’s meticulously ordered streets and thoughtfully designed details. The seamless integration of the buildings with the colors of the sky in Tokyo created a distinct aesthetic that mesmerized her.
