Interview with Alvan Suen

Could you please tell us more about your art and design background? What made you become an artist/designer? Have you always wanted to be a designer?
I graduated from the University of Hong Kong with a Bachelor of Art in Architectural Studies. I have always wanted to be a designer and I believe design can even change the world, at least how people see the world.
Can you tell us more about your company / design studio?
The Food Story is an aspiring dining and lifestyle organization with an objective to curate and introduces new and trend-leading concepts to the Hong Kong and China markets.We believe every concept has its own history and story. And every story translates into different tastes and personal touches. The company also believes that project design has the biggest impact on the experience of dining and even the taste of food.
What is "design" for you?
To me, design in verb form is basically the act of making the world; design in noun is basically what makes the world.
What kinds of works do you like designing most?
Design that can be inhabited by a person, such as interior space and architecture.
What is your most favorite design, could you please tell more about it?
One of my favorite projects is called interlaced-void, an environmental architecture design project that I did for my final year at the university; the massing concept allows wind and natural light to get through almost every inch of the high-rise building in a dense city like Hong Kong. In terms of the experience of the design, the temperature and movement of nature become physically present.
What makes a design successful?
It achieves the goal and which the concept can be further developed.
When judging a design as good or bad, which aspects do you consider first?
Concept, the story behind and the relationship between elements to form that.
From your point of view, what are the responsibilities of a designer for society and environment?
A designer should make good concepts that can deliver positive messages and bring inspiration to the society and so to make our living environment different, colorful and rich.
