Wong Mun Summ and Richard Hassell: Garden City, Mega City-Strategies for the 21st Century Sustainable City
6:30 pm - 8:00 pm (EDT)
- Harvard Graduate School of Design
- Piper Auditorium, 48 Quincy Street
The 21st century promises to be very different from the 20th century – so why are cities being planned using components that were developed during the last 100 years? In this talk, WOHA Directors share some ideas on what the designers of hyper dense cities of the 21st century could and should be doing to make them great places to live.
The architecture of WOHA, founded by Wong Mun Summ and Richard Hassell in 1994, is notable for its constant evolution and innovation. A profound awareness of local context and tradition is intertwined with an ongoing exploration of contemporary architectural form-making and ideas, thus creating a unique fusion of practicality and invention. WOHA conceptualizes all aspects of the architectural process, and environmental principles have always been fundamental to the work of the practice, which is guided by a commitment to responsive place-making and to the creation of an invigorating and sustainable architecture.
