Vivien Liu channeled her love of architecture into a passion for photographing the urban scenes of cities around the world. Currently based in Hong Kong, she delights her 240,000 Instagram followers with her unique perspectives of one of the world’s most built-up cities. Although her primary interest lies in urban imagery, she has broadened her style to include portraiture, natural landscapes, and product photography. In 2016, she founded Studio UNIT, an architecture, interior, and portrait photography studio, through which she has worked with international clients like Nikon, Leica, Jack Daniels, American Express, and Huawei.g.
Vivien graduated from the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor of Architectural Studies. She also attended Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design, where she won the prestigious Clifford Wong Prize in Housing Design.
