Su Chang is the principal of Su Chang Design Research Office and an adjunct assistant professor at the University of Hong Kong, where he teaches design studios, leads seminars on history/theory and sustainability/technology, and advises graduate thesis students. His teaching and design research revolves around architecture’s relationship with the water environment and explores new forms of public life and their spaces between architecture and landscape.

The work of Su Chang Design Research Office brings together design, research, and action to rebuild architecture’s relationship with the environment, provoking the imagination of architecture as geography. The projects envision architecture as spatial infrastructures that support future iterations and adaptations, encouraging sustainability, diversity, and participation. The work has been exhibited at the Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism/Architecture (Shenzhen and Hong Kong), Harvard University Druker Design Gallery (Cambridge), HKU PMQ Architecture Gallery (Hong Kong), RNH Space (Hong Kong, solo exhibition), and Cloud Gallery (New York, solo exhibition).

Chang’s writing and translation work similarly connect architecture’s physical presence to its participation in a more extensive geography of ideas, most recently in the Chinese edition of Iñaki Ábalos’s The Good Life: A Guided Visit to the Houses of Modernity (Tongji University Press, 2019) and Valerio Olgiati’s Non-Referential Architecture (forthcoming). Additional publications include essays, interviews, commentaries, and projects in Urban Design Environment, Landscape Architecture Frontier, Built Heritage, Wallpaper, Taiwan Architecture, and the Harvard GSD Platform. Chang is a founding member of Tangent Essays, an online and paper-based publishing platform that periodically features writings about architecture.

Chang is a licensed architect and a member of the American Institute of Architects, where he currently co-chairs AIA Hong Kong Chapter’s Programs Committee. 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.
