Interview with QUAD studio

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?
Wai Tang Founding Partner of QUAD Born in Hong Kong in 1970 he moved to the UK in 1972 and at the age of 17 enrolled in the Birmingham School of Architecture before moving to London in 1993 to complete his Masters at the University of Westminster. There he was mentored by RIBA gold medallist, David Greene of Archigram, and was awarded the RIBA Silver Medal Runner Up award for best national diploma project in 1995.
Can you tell us more about your company / design studio?
Their entire ethos of QUAD studio is based on the belief that humanity is at the crossroads of change and that clients today demand more from architects than just architecture. As such, QUAD describes itself as a collective polymath of designers working together to create a holistic design narrative that blurs the lines between what were once considered separate disciplines. From architecture through to interiors, furniture design and branding, QUAD brings together a group of like-minded individuals, intent on sharing ideas and bringing them to reality for the betterment of the society.
What is "design" for you?
For me, to see his ideals and design philosophy being executed to perfection and being able to influence the lives of future generations, is truly what being a designer is all about.
What kinds of works do you like designing most?
As a brand we don’t promise anything specific, but we have created a platform to explore ideas, experiment and discuss. In that sense we see ourselves as a laboratory for design, where innovation is like poetry and design is derived from the principles of dogma and context, where dogma is a series of beliefs and context is how they are implemented.
What is your most favorite design, could you please tell more about it?
In the past few year, we were fortunate to work on projects and many different scales, from the small 8000m2 Cultural Centre in Shantou to the 5,000,000m2 Super Headquarter Base in Shenzhen bay. Do I have a favourite? Not really, all my project is somewhat special in their own way.
What is your favorite material / platform / technology?
My favourite material is glass and the different ways you can use glass in architecture
From your point of view, what are the responsibilities of a designer for society and environment?
All designs must be environmentally focused, our world is dying, if we don’t do our part, we will not have a world to live in anymore. That’s what in our project Megalopolis X, we strive to create a world that relieves stress on our infrastructure as well as ideas to deal with the rubbish generated in our cities. Gasification of our rubbish to run turbines to power public lighting and district cooling is definitely one of many sustainable items in the strive towards a zero-carbon city
How do you think the "design field" is evolving? What is the future of design?
Architecture is in the forefront of change and like the great artist in the renaissance period, I want QUAD to be one of the many pioneers of the new age of renaissance happening in Greater China or even in this world.
When was your last exhibition and where was it? And when do you want to hold your next exhibition?
Our last exhibition was in March 2020, held simultaneously at The Mills, Tsuen Wan, Hong Kong and Futien in Shenzhen, PRC for the Hong Kong and Shenzhen Bi-city Biennale for Architecture and Urbanism. Hopefully our next exhibition would be held this Summer in Shenzhen
What type of design work do you enjoy the most and why?
I have always enjoyed the birth of a concept where us designer create from zero to one
What are your future plans? What is next for you?
I have great aspirations for QUAD. In 5 years, I want some of our designs to get recognised in the world stage with some of our project getting realized. In 10 years, I hope QUAD will be a well-known architectural practice for its ability achieve cutting edge design and in the forefront of innovation.
Do you work as a team, or do you develop your designs yourself?
Working as a team is the only way to work. I still truly believe in the collective polymath where a group of creative individuals come together for social intervention
