Shenzhou Dai

Shenzhou (Joe) is one of our most detailed-orientated Architectural Designers. With a degree in architecture from the University of California, Berkeley, Shenzhou's work is highly aesthetic while conscious of appropriate + efficient building materials.

What I Do Here

I am a designer at Ten Seventy Architecture. My responsibility is to bring distinctive spaces to clients (and the Earth) through beautiful designs and high-quality drawings.

Who I Am

I'm from China and have a keen interest in various design fields, including architecture, machinery, automobiles, and aircraft. Initially, I thought my calling might be in industrial design. However, the sense of power in brutalism architecture during the Cold War era and the meticulously detailed works of Carlo Scarpa made me realize that architecture offers a more liberated world, where I can be both a rationalist and a "madman". I obtained my B.Arch. in China and pursued a master's degree at UC Berkeley

What I’m In To

I enjoy a wide range of interests, including photography, cycling, classical music, collecting medieval items, and PC gaming. I particularly love listening to film scores composed by Ennio Morricone, as well as cello albums by Yo-Yo Ma and Rostropovich. My favorite movies are Sergio Leone's "Once Upon a Time" trilogy.
