Su Chang is an adjunct assistant professor at the University of Hong Kong and Principal of Su Chang Design Research Office. His work brings together design, research, and action toward an architecture that embraces multiple temporalities in contemporary life. The projects are envisioned as spatial infrastructures that support future iterations and adaptations, encouraging sustainability, diversity, and participation.
Chang’s 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 has been internationally 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 larger 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 Environment Design (forthcoming), Landscape Architecture Frontier (forthcoming), Wallpaper, Taiwan Architecture, and Harvard GSD Platform.
Su Chang received his Master in Architecture with commendation and a 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. A registered architect, Chang is currently the Programs Committee Chair of the American Institute of Architects Hong Kong Chapter.
