Peichao Di, AIA, LEED AP BD+C, WELL AP, PMP
Mr. Di moved to the United States from China in 2015 to earn his Master of Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania. Since graduating, Peichao has been a valued member of CosciaMoos’ design staff and is an AIA certified, LEED and WELL AP accredited architect. Peichao is actively involved in all phases of projects and works in the mixed-use, multi-family housing, hospitality, and healthcare sectors. He is an active UPenn Alumnus and member of the Penn Weitzman Alumni Association, and volunteers reviewing current students’ portfolios and future student admissions. He views Philly as his home away from China and looks forward to future visits back to his home country.
Mr. Di’s design expertise at CosciaMoos on several projects has borne recognition with design awards on the following projects: The Poplar – 2021 Excellence in Construction Award | Associated Builders & Contractors Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter; Marriott at Pencoyd Landing – 2021 Best Design Award | Architect’s Newspaper in the Urban Design Category; and the Hamilton Court Amenities Building – 2016 AIA Philadelphia Merit Award in the Unbuilt Category.
Beyond these few examples of Mr. Di’s project experience, he was recognized as deserving of this award for his mentorship and giving back in order to improve the experience for all students, especially international students who are dealing with the cultural adjustment of living in the United States, along with the rigor of the Penn academic program. Recently, Mr. Di was elected as the Vice President of the Penn Weitzman Alumni Association. As the first Vice President of the organization with an international background, he is motivated to contribute to the development of the Weitzman School of Design, and hopes to show fellow immigrants they can succeed in the field of architecture.
