Zhen ZHANG started working in the German-Chinese context in Shanghai. Between 2008-2010, her focus was the planning of bamboo pavilions used for the touring exhibition Germany and China – Moving ahead together, which culminated with the “German-Chinese House” at the World Expo Shanghai 2010. Between 2011-2013, she was an architect with von Gerkan, Marg und Partner.

Her further pursuit of study at RWTH Aachen ended with her master design “Isle of Islay – Nature Observatory: Remembrance of a Forgotten Treaty between Man and Nature”, which received a special reward of BDA-SARP-Award 2016 and a nomination for the Euregional Prize (EAP). Between 2015-2017, she was assistant editor at ARCH+ Aachen and curated the Exhibition “Planetary Urbanism” in the German Pavilion at the UN Habitat III Conference in Quito.

Since 2017, she is Research and Teaching Assistant at the Department of Theory of Architecture, RWTH Aachen. From time to time she contributes as a freelance editor for CITYMAKERS.
