Kinoshita Lecture in Architecture: Wong Mun Summ, WOHA

Date & Time





Form Follows Systems

WOHA co-Founding Director Wong Mun Summ will give an insight into the practice’s “Systems Approach”, in which every project is viewed as part of a larger social, environmental and economic system. WOHA’s buildings are designed as active and productive systems that are integrated into their social, ecological and urban context. With each project, the practice explores how it can optimise systems to create spaces that foster community, enable the stewardship of nature, generate biophilic beauty and versatility, activate ecosystem services and build resilience.

Please RSVP by 11 April 2022.

Wong Mun Summ co-founded the Singapore-based architectural practice WOHA in 1994. He is a Professor in Practice at the National University of Singapore, Department of Architecture. He sits on the Nominating Committee of the Lee Kuan Yew World City Prize and other design advisory panels in Singapore.

WOHA work at all scales, from buildings to masterplans, and see their projects as living systems that are connected to the city as a whole. WOHA have accrued a varied portfolio of work and apply their systems thinking approach to architecture and urbanism in their building design as well as their regenerative masterplans. The practice currently has projects under construction in Singapore, Australia, China and other countries in South Asia.
