Yiyang Sang is an architect and interior designer operating in the field of visual arts, graphic design, architecture design, interior design and construction practice.

Mr. Yiyang has been practicing in the field of Architecture since 2012. His studies in architecture began with his undergraduate work at the University of Liverpool at Liverpool, UK. In 2017, he completed his first Masters degree at University of Liverpool where he also served as a Teaching Assistant in the design documentation curriculum. Professional experience was first gained under the employ of Atelier Deshaus, Shanghai and later at B+U Architecture, LA while concurrently working at MAKE Architecture, LA. These early experiences introduced Mr. Yiyang to restaurant, hospitality and office projects as well as the process a project follows from commencement to completion.

Following completion of his Graduate work, he accepted a position with MAKE Architecture in Los Angeles, CA where he quickly advanced to managing different types of projects including single-family residential, multi-family residential, restaurant, and hospitality buildings. On his own during this same period, he was commissioned to design several residential construction projects based in San Bernardino county, CA and established architectural brand style together with Marriot hotel management team. As one of the D5 render development team, he was invited as speaking guest to present 'D5 animation' workflow workshop at Harvard GSD on September, 2022.
