Narrative is central to Yang’s Lens of Beauty project, in which she pays homage to the rich yet rapidly disappearing arts community of Toronto’s Scarborough Bluffs neighborhood.

The interior designer in training demonstrates her technical and problem-solving prowess in projects like Maison Margiela MM6, a theoretical store cleverly anchored in an unused shopping mall corridor. The modular scheme, composed of curved mirrors and integrated displays, makes better use of the overlooked space and facilitates a more engaging, personalized, and spontaneous shopping experience for unsuspecting passersby.
