WE-DESIGNS.ORG, LLC is interested in the emergent, interactive, and progressive investigations of architecture + design 

Wendy W Fok, director/founder and team member of WE-DESIGNS.ORG, LLC (Architecture) and atelier//studio-WF (Art), winner of the Hong Kong Young Design Talent Award (2009), and a selected designer of the Perspective 40 under 40 Award (2011), has a Master of Architecture & Certification of Urban Policy/Planning from Princeton University. Notably, WE-DESIGNS.ORG, LLC has been selected by Twenty+Change (co-curated by Heather Dubbeldam and Lola Sheppard) as one of twenty Emerging Canadian Design Practices (2011) in Canada.

WE-DESIGNS.ORG, LLC approach to the field of art and architectural design is a cross pollination of ideals which breed between an integral relationship of innovation between hybrid materials and digital tooling, in combination of investigative research and development that expand onto the mutually catalytic innovations of academia, practice, and research for places and non-places.

WE-DESIGNS.ORG, LLC is interested in the emergent, interactive, and progressive/dynamic investigations of architecture + design within the urban fabric, and material research within the realm of fabrication and scalar development. The team members are composed of an international base of ingénue designers from distinctive backgrounds + multifaceted design fields, in producing a differentiated approach to the integral design processes within a project. They are an international creative collective & collaborative architecture + design group.

Wendy W Fok has an international background from Vienna, New York, London, Paris, Tokyo, Beijing, Hong Kong & Canada. Her art installations have been displayed internationally, and has worked on several international architectural projects, exhibitions, & competitions-including the HKSZ (Hong Kong Shenzhen) Bi-City Biennale 2012, 12th La Biennale di Venezia 2011, the Shanghai Expo 2010, & Athens
Fringe Festival 2009.

Fok's interests are towards investigations of contextual and content-related natures of fabrication, and cradle-to-cradle material investigations that compliment scaled prototypes within architectural design. Meanwhile, her design methodology is to challenge the dynamic significance in structuring and mapping the ideals of art, architecture, and urbanism within the processes of [design | optimisation | fabrication] for sustainable planning, interactive design, material research, and alternative methods of fabrication with progressive aims within the built environment.

In her spare time, Fok is the founder and administrator of (C)ODE-(C)OLLECTIVE-a collective forum for Grasshopper, Rhino, Parametric Modeling, and other digital design tools, which pose as an educational and developing archive site to formulate the critical utility of digital design-an Associate Member of the HKPDA (Hong Kong Parametric Design Association), and Contributing / Overseas Editor for the a+a magazine, published by the Architectural Society of China.
