AD Interviews: Richard Hassell / WOHA

During the 2012 World Architecture Festival held in Singapore, we had the opportunity to interview Richard Hassell, one of the founders of the highly acclaimed practice WOHA.

We were excited about this interview, as I have been very interested on WOHA’s work after featuring them extensively at ArchDaily,  given their approach to the important issues of density and sustainability in South Asia, mixing particular programmatic needs with the local identity.

The Singaporean firm was started in 1994 by Wong Mun Summ (Architect from the National University of Singapore) and Richard Hassell (Architect from the University of Western Australia), and has been involved in projects that range from tall residential towers, to hotels, commercial buildings, transport infrastructure, and also urban research projects such as their vision for Singapore 2050.

In this interview Richard digs deeper into how WOHA operates and his views about the profession.

WOHA’s work has been recognized with important awards, including the RIBA Lubetkin Prize (2011), several RIBA International Awards (2010 and 2011), the World Architecture Festival Awards (2009 and 2010) and the prestigious Aga Kahn Award for Architecture (2007).

As of today, several projects from WOHA are under construction: Oasia Downtown, PARKROYAL and Skyville @ Dawson. See the completed projects by WOHA at ArchDaily:
