Su Chang Design Research Office brings together design, research, and action toward an architecture that embraces multiple temporalities in contemporary life. The projects are envisioned as spatial infrastructures that support future iterations and adaptations, encouraging sustainability, diversity, and participation.
Our design method focuses on new forms of public life and their spaces between architecture and landscape. All projects are collaborative and involve partnerships across disciplines to stroll against the categories of design, in search of new techniques to rebuild architecture's relationship with the environment.

Su Chang received his Master in Architecture with commendation and Dean’s Merit Scholarship from Harvard University Graduate School of Design. Previously, Chang was educated at Peking University, ETH Zürich, and received a Bachelor of Arts in Architectural Studies with First Class Honour and a full scholarship from the University of Hong Kong.
Before founding his practice, Chang worked with Michael Maltzan in Los Angeles and Wang Weijen in Hong Kong. A licensed architect and a member of the American Institute of Architects, Chang currently co-chairs AIA Hong Kong Chapter’s Programs Committee.
Chang’s writing and translation work similarly connects architecture’s physical presence to its participation in a larger geography of ideas, most recently in the Chinese edition of Iñaki Ábalos’s The Good Life: A Guided Visit to the Houses of Modernity (Tongji University Press, 2019) and Valerio Olgiati’s Non-Referential Architecture (forthcoming). Additional publications include essays, interviews, commentaries, and projects in Wallpaper, Taiwan Architecture, and Harvard GSD Platform.
Currently, Chang is an adjunct assistant professor at the University of Hong Kong, where he teaches design studios, leads seminars on history/theory and sustainability/technology tracks, and advises graduate thesis students. He is a founding member Tangent Essays, an online and paper-based publishing platform that periodically features writings about architecture.
