During his study at Tsinghua University, Lian launched and presided over The Interdisciplinary Salon for Tsinghua Architecture. Well experienced in design theory, design teaching and construction practice, he designed children’s education courses for Harvard pre-text teaching institution. Since 2015, he has started to teach interdisciplinary system integration design courses for Tsinghua i.Center. In addition, he cooperated with a number of schools in organizing and designing workshops and recycled products art festivals. He tried to shape children's understanding of space by architecture and guide them to find the links between different knowledge, subjects and skills by the reconstruction of spaces.
Lian said that the space where humans exist is complex. In order to improve the efficiency of survival, our ancestors often took a linear and simple road in understanding and processing space through compressing and coding. To this day, human beings should improve self-awareness in space construction, and the public should make fuller use of the "space rights".
