spatial / geometrical / mathematical / material processing

The endeavours of Wendy W Fok’s research-based projects are dedicated to the creation of designs interlaced within the principals of procedural-based mathematics, logics, and material studies, within the field of architecture, digital media, and design. Her designs are substantiated through explorations between the cross-pollination of spatial installation arts and novel architectural innovations embedded within international urban cityscapes.


Wendy W Fok, director/founder and team member of WE-DESIGNS.ORG, LLC (Architecture) and atelier//studio-WF (Art), winner of the ADC Young Guns 11 Award (2013), AIA (American Institute of Architects) Dallas “Express Yourself” Women in Architecture Award (2013), Hong Kong Young Design Talent Award (2009), and selected designer of the Perspective 40 under 40 Award (2011), has a Master of Architecture and Certification of Urban Policy/Planning from Princeton University, and a Bachelor of Arts in Architecture with a Concentration in Economics (Statistics) from Barnard College, Columbia University.

Notably, WE-DESIGNS.ORG, LLC has been selected by Twenty+Change(co-curated by Heather Dubbeldam and Lola Sheppard) as 1 of 20 Emerging Canadian Design Practices (2011), while recently Fok has been shortlisted as 1 of 13 DX (Design Exchange) Emerging Talent Awards (2013) across Canada.


Along with her practice, Fok is also a Tenure-Track Assistant Professor, enforcing and leading the Digital Media and Design Program at the Gerald D Hines College of Architecture, University of Houston, and a Doctor of Design doctoral student at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design. In parallel with her doctoral research, Fok is involved as a fellow in the DPSI - Digital Problem Solving Initiative (DPSI) Pilot at the Harvard Law School’s Berkman Center for Internet and Society. Her doctoral research will be an investigative approach between computational innovation and ethical application of technical methods, within digital fabrication and commodisation, for architecture and design. Fok has also been invited to tutor at several Architectural Association (AA) Visiting Schools, among other prestigious design workshops internationally.


Fok has an international background from Vienna, New York, London, Paris, Tokyo, Beijing, Hong Kong, and Canada. Her art installations have been displayed in Singapore, Paris, London, Dubai, Vancouver, Toronto, Hong Kong, Shanghai, New York, Athens, Venice, and Prague. She has worked on several international architectural projects, exhibitions, and competitions — including the Asia Society Hong Kong Center “Imminent Domain” Exhibition Chief Curated by Dir. Fumio Nanjo, Director of the Mori Art Museum (2013), an Exhibition and Residency at Cité internationale des arts Paris funded by the Académie D’Architecture in Paris (2013), the London Design Festival TENT (2012), Toronto International Design Festival (2012), HKSZ Bi-City Biennale (2011/12), 12th & 13th La Biennale di Venezia (2010/12), the Shanghai Expo (2010), Athens Fringe Festival (2009), and Lower East Side Tenement Museum (2004/05).
