Ruth Chang joined Davis Square Architects as a designer in 2017. Prior to joining the firm she completed several internships abroad, working on a variety of projects such as a retail high-rise in Taipei, a luxury hotel in Shanghai, and exhibition designs in Paris. In her role as a designer, Ruth’s responsibilities include drafting plans and elevations, modeling, graphic presentations, and assisting with team communications.

She graduated magna cum laude from Princeton University with her Bachelor of Arts in Architecture, receiving two awards for her thesis, The Artifice of Water: Fantasy and Fluidity in the works of Charles W.
