Yuval Zohar is a LEED accredited architect and partner at JDS Shanghai/MUDI. After graduating from the University of Maryland School of Architecture in 2008, where he was president of the Wushu team, Yuval worked at RTKL in Washington, DC for a year before beginning his journey to the East. Arriving in China in 2009, he joined the architecture firm TEKTAO, as project architect on the New Jindai Sustainable School in the earthquake-devastated region of Chongqing. In the following two years, he won a competition for a carbon neutral office as chief designer, realized a design for the Shanghai World Expo, and contributed to a project on Chongming Island that was featured in TEDx Shanghai. He later collaborated with Neville Mars at his Shanghai-based firm MARS architects for two years, leading a competition-winning entry for a climbing complex in Bulgaria that was selected over 369 other entries, engaging in ecological urban research for a Chinese eco-city, and as project architect and on-site administrator for a recent exhibition at the BMW Guggenheim Lab in Mumbai, where he spoke at Indian architecture universities on future visions of the city. In 2013, Yuval was a guest lecturer and panelist at ECO-NOMY magazine’s ‘Wisdom of Green Design’ salon.
