Xinyi Zhou

Designer

Xinyi is a detail-oriented designer, with work that focuses on the human-scale experience of landscape. She grew up in Hangzhou, China, deriving endless creative inspiration from weekends spent at the city’s West Lake. She studied Garden Design and Industrial Engineering at Zhejiang University and dove into the intersection of these disciplines at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, where she earned her MLA. Xinyi interned at GGN in Seattle and worked on several sculptural landscape detail designs. At Reed Hilderbrand since 2020, she is working on commissions for the Beyond in North Adams, MA and Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. In her free time, she loves to explore spaces that feel as if they are untouched by humans. Her dream is to live on a mountain and approach every day with humor.
