Su Chang is an architect, occasional writer and curator, currently teaching architecture design at the University of Hong Kong. His design each involves a research agenda into contemporary spatial issues including environmental awareness, multiple identities, and the experience of simultaneity. Each project considers historical typologies at their intersection with contemporary cultures and public life.
Chang has worked with Michael Maltzan in Los Angeles and Wang Weijen in Hong Kong as a project architect for exhibition, educational, cultural, and residential projects in North America and Asia. His translation work for the Chinese edition of Iñaki Ábalos’s The Good Life: A Guided Visit to the Houses of Modernity was published by Luminocity, Tongji University Press (2019). A second collaborative translation project for Valerio Olgiati’s Non-Referential Architecture is currently under contract with Chinese Architecture and Building Press.
Chang received his Master in Architecture with commendation and Dean’s Merit Scholarship from Harvard University Graduate School of Design. Previously, Chang was educated at Peking University, ETH Zürich, and received a Bachelor of Arts in Architectural Studies with First Class Honour and a full scholarship from the University of Hong Kong. He is a licensed architect and a member of the American Institute of Architects, currently co-chairing AIA Hong Kong Chapter’s Programs Committee.
