Richard Hassell is an Australian-born architect and artist living in Singapore. With Wong Mun Summ, he co-founded the architectural practice WOHA in 1989—a firm that has accrued a varied and prestigious portfolio of work. Richard combines his architectural practice with theoretical explorations into issues of climate, density, and the future of the city. He also maintains an ongoing practice as an artist, with past work in painting and in the compositional language of tessellation.
At SUTD, Richard will share recent works, as well as some older projects that were influential in the development of WOHA’s approach to architecture. This presentation will be followed by a conversation about some of the key preoccupations of the firm’s work and philosophy, past and present.
