High-Performance Promotions

Atelier Ten is excited to announce the latest promotions in the US of Rebecca Riss to Associate, Te Qi to Associate, and Changyang Shin to Senior Environmental Design. We invite you to celebrate their recent accomplishments!

Rebecca Riss, Associate

Since joining the team in 2015, Rebecca has worked on over 60 projects including the recently completed LEED Platinum Museum of Modern Art expansion. For Rebecca, it not only excited her to work on one of her favorite museums in New York, but also to be part of a team that was invested in making the project as sustainable as possible. As an expert in the firm’s Benchmarking and Carbon Strategy practices, she advocates for low-carbon design strategies in all of her projects. Currently she is developing and refining specification language for low-carbon concrete and other low-carbon materials.

Te Qi, Associate

Te is a licensed engineer and an expert in the firm’s Energy Analysis practice. He has significantly expanded the firm’s analytic capability through the development of new tools and processes. One of his favorite projects has been the Joan and Sanford I. Weill Neurosciences Building at the University of California San Francisco. Te became involved early in the design process using his advanced analytical skillset to inform the facade design, mechanical system selections, and control optimization. He communicated between the design team and the operation team to ensure the energy efficiency features could be successfully implemented by the operational team, therefore yielding a truly high-performance lab.

Chanyang Shin, Senior Environmental Designer

As a LEED and WELL accredited professional and an ASHRAE High-Performance Building Design professional, Chanyang passionately advocates for sustainability in the built environment. Having worked on a wide range of projects, from hospitals to museums to mixed-use developments, she has become an invaluable member of the firm’s Carbon Strategy and Energy Analysis practices. One of her first projects at Atelier Ten was the Joslyn Art Museum, the largest museum in Nebraska. She contributed to both the environmental design and energy analysis, providing an integrated approach to building performance.
