Alexander Wong Architects searches for new ways of interpreting designs
Alexander Wong Architects is an innovative and multi-disciplinary firm created by Alexander Wong in search of new ways of interpreting designs including architecture for Asia and beyond.
In 2005, Alexander Wong published his book "Naked + White" about the concept of "Naked Architecture". Strongly believing for a design to be beautiful, it has to be meaningful; meaningful because it is functional; and functional because it is useful - useful on an everyday basis, just like part of an everyday ritual. The approach is to think holistically with an emphasis on meaning, function and originality.
Alexander Wong Architects has gained recognition garnering many awards which include the 2002 the Perspective Plus - Top Five Interior Award (2002), HKIA 20:21 Emerging Hong Kong Architects Award (2004), HKIA Members' Work Outside of Hong Kong Award (2005) for his design of a major architectural project in China, Ten Outstanding Designers Awards (2007) and Merit Award for the Hong Kong Design Institute International Architectural Competition (2007) [Jury panel headed by Richard Meier] as one of the Top 5 Finalists from 162 entries worldwide - the only finalist representing China competing with teams from Japan, Italy, France and USA. In 2009, Wong was also selected and featured in the China Construction Expert Subject Official Stamp Album under The Framework of CEPA (Mainland and Hong Kong Closer Economic Partnership Arrangement) and in 2010 awarded with USA's 2010 International Design Awards (IDA) Interior Design Silver Award (Commercial) for UA Shenzhen KK Mall Cinema.
