Biography

Born in Hong Kong, Gary Chang graduated from The University of Hong Kong in 1987. He found EDGE in 1994, later renamed as EDGE Design Institute Ltd., which has been selected as one of the Best 100 Architecture Firms in the World in 2019 by DOMUS Magazine. Inspired by his childhood living experience with family, Chang designed his own version of 32 sqm apartment – “Domestic Transformer” in 2007 that could be transformed into 24 different modes without compromising exquisite living standards. This controversial project granted him a significant position in the architectural scene and put him in the vanguard of the growing global phenomenon of compact living. Some of his key multi-disciplinary designs include Suitcase House at Commune by the Great Wall in Beijing, MoMA Design Store in Hong Kong, Tellus Tower project in Stockholm, Tian Spa at Park Hyatt Beijing, Private Jets and Yachts. His publications My 32sqm Apartment and Suitcase House received great response and were sold out shortly. He has also designed products for Alessi, including the Kung Fu Tea Set, Treasure Box for Urban Nomads, and curated its first-ever project in China, the “(Un)forbidden City”.
