Wong Mun Summ is the co-Founding Director of WOHA, an international award-winning architectural practice based in Singapore. He is a Professor in Practice at the National University of Singapore at the Department of Architecture, School of Design & Environment. He sits on the Nominating Committee of the Lee Kuan Yew World City Prize and other design advisory panels in Singapore.
Wong Mun Summ founded WOHA with Richard Hassell in 1994. Rather than being overwhelmed by the challenges of climate change, population growth and urbanisation, the Singapore-based practice has evolved innovative new architectural and urban solutions to tackle the problems of the 21st century.
WOHA has accrued a varied portfolio of work and is known for its distinct approach to biophilic design and integrated landscaping. The practice has won a number of architectural awards, most recently the 2019 Urban Habitat and Best Mixed-Use Building awards from the Council of Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) and 2018 World Building of the Year for Kampung Admiralty and 2018 Best Tall Building Worldwide for the Oasia Hotel Downtown.
WOHA’s Platinum Green Mark-rated PARKROYAL on Pickering hotel has become one of Singapore’s most iconic buildings, receiving the 2015 CTBUH Urban Habitat Award, the 2014 Design for Asia Grand Award and the 2013 World Architecture News Hotel of the Year Award.
Currently, the practice has projects under construction in Singapore, India, China and Australia.
