Maya Lin Internationally acclaimed artist

林瓔

President

Maya Lin Studio

Lin’s work encompasses large-scale environmental installations, intimate studio artworks, architectural works, and memorials. She redefined the idea of monument with her very first work, the Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial, and has since gone on to pursue a remarkable career in both art and architecture, whilst still being committed to the exploration of time, memory, history and language.

Her artwork interprets the world through a twenty-first century lens, utilizing technological methods to study and visualize the natural environment. Lin has been the subject of solo exhibitions at museums worldwide, and has also created permanent outdoor installations for public and private collections from New York to New Zealand.

Her architectural projects are largely undertaken at the request of non-profit institutions and include the Museum for Chinese in America in New York City and the Riggio-Lynch Interfaith Chapel. Her designs create a close dialogue between the landscape and built environment, and she is committed to advocating sustainable design solutions in all her works.

She is at work on her final memorial, What is Missing?, a project that raises awareness about the crisis surrounding biodiversity and habitat loss. “Maya Lin: Topologies”, a new monograph covering the past 30 years of her career has recently been published by Skira Rizzoli.
