I am a Registered Architect graduated from Hong Kong. After a few years of commercial work experience, I looked for work with a more humanitarian focus and started working on rural projects in China in Rural Urban Framework. Since 2010, I have worked with rural communities, charity groups and local governments designing and constructing architectural projects, and research on the transformation of Chinese villages, towns and cities. With experience in building relationships, diplomacy and realising ideas, I co-founded DOMAT with Mark Kingsley in 2013. I am currently teaching in CUHK as an adjunct Assistant Professor.
I am a graduate of The University of Sheffield, a school where social awareness is integral to architecture, and where theory and practice share an equal status. This led to my interest in different ways of doing architecture and projects that engage with daily life. After moving to Hong Kong in 2006, the reality of architectural production has meant that I worked primarily in commercial offices. Co-founding DOMAT is a return to hearty work that deals with ideas and pragmatism.
