OPEN Architecture Founding Partner Wenjing Huang will present a guest lecture at the Abedian School of Architecture on Thursday 12 November 2015.

A licensed architect in New York State and a member of American Institute of Architects, Huang co-founded the OPEN Architecture Studio in New York City with Li Hu as a platform for experimentation. OPEN has since established an office in Beijing, China and a project office in New Delhi, India.

Huang is also a visiting assistant professor at the University of Hong Kong and Tsinghua University and was a senior editor for World Architecture Magazine.

OPEN has been recognised by many architectural awards for its progressive work, including World Architecture’s Chinese Architecture Award 2012 and 2014, China Architecture Media Awards 2012, Asia Pacific Interior Design Awards 2013, Re-thinking the Future Awards 2014, London Design Museum’s Designs of the Year 2015 Nomination, and most recently, Merit Award of 2015 AIANY Design Awards. OPEN was also invited to be part of the Chicago Architecture Biennale, which opened recently.

The public lecture at Bond University’s Abedian School of Architecture is sponsored by HASSELL and is free to attend. Refreshments will be served at 6.00pm with the lecture to begin at 6.30pm.
