Description, Philosophy, History

Description:
WOHA is a Singapore-based architecture practice, founded in 1994 by Wong Mun Summ and Richard Hassell (born 28 October 1966). In 1989, Wong graduated from the National University of Singapore and Hassell graduated from the University of Western Australia. WOHA’s built projects – throughout Southeast Asia, China, and Australia – range from apartment towers to luxury resorts, mass-transit stations, condominiums, hotels, educational institutions, and public buildings.
Philosophy:
The architecture of WOHA, founded by Wong Mun Summ and Richard Hassell in 1994, is notable for its constant evolution and innovation. A profound awareness of local context and tradition is intertwined with an ongoing exploration of contemporary architectural form-making and ideas, thus creating a unique fusion of practicality and invention. WOHA conceptualizes all aspects of the architectural process, and environmental principles have always been fundamental to the work of the practice, which is guided by a commitment to responsive place-making and to the creation of an invigorating and sustainable architecture.
