Cheryl Wong


Cheryl Wing-Zi Wong is an artist/architect working between New York and Bangkok, where she is currently an adjunct professor in the International Program in Design & Architecture (INDA) at Chulalongkorn University in Thailand.


Wong’s work investigates architecture and performance. Uniting her training in art and architecture, she creates transformative and performative spaces. She explores how spaces can perform on varying scales, ranging from smaller scales such as surfaces that accommodate the body, to larger spaces that extend their reach to entire environments. Her work merges the physical construction of spaces with relational dynamics, in which harnessing public interaction is integral. Wong’s creative process is a crossover between digital drawing (using tools such as mapping and 3D modeling) and the performative construction of spaces. Her work has been published in Domus Magazine, Architizer, Design Observer and Interior Design Magazine.


Born and raised in Los Angeles, Wong received her B.A. in Art and Italian at the University of California at Berkeley, studied sculpture at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera (Milan, Italy) and earned her Masters in Architecture from Columbia University GSAPP. Wong has lived and worked in Milan, Hong Kong, Berlin, New York, Berkeley, Macau and Bangkok. She has worked with various creative minds including Flavio Albanese, Maggie Cardelùs and Elmgreen & Dragset, and has designed exhibition spaces such as the Nordic and Danish pavilions for the Venice Biennale of Art. She is currently on the Board of Directors for NY design non-profit FAARM (Focus on Art, Architecture, Research & Making).
