Maya Lin (Athens, Ohio, USA, 1959) studied art and architecture at Yale University.
Her first project was the Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial in Washington DC (1981-1982), which she produced when she was barely twenty-two years old.
At that time she set up her studio in New York, from which she has carried out numerous architectural, landscaping and public-space projects. Lin is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters, as well as the American Academy of the Arts and Sciences. She received the USA’s National Medal of Arts in 2009 and is included in the National Women’s Hall of Fame in Seneca Falls, New York.
Her work has also been exhibited in museums and galleries worldwide, with solo shows such as Il Cortile Mare (1998) at the American Academy in Rome or those celebrated at the De Young Museum in San Francisco, the Corcoran Art Gallery in Washington D.C., the Heinz Architectural Center in Pittsburgh, the Wana?s Foundation in Sweden, or the David Brower Center in Berkeley to name a few.
