Lin Huiyin was born in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, grew up in a scholarly family. She and her lover Liang Sicheng jointly entered the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, USA.

The Department of Architecture did not admit female students at that time. In 2024, the University will use a ceremony to re-grant an architecture degree that is a century overdue to tell everyone: Ms. LinHuiyin is an outstanding, outstanding, and truly worthy architect. The ceremony will take place at the Weizman School of Design on May 18, 2024.
