Today you are extremely lucky to read the interview with a famous architect Peter Wang. He is a design director and principal of a known firm Gensler. The aim of this company consists in making design as strategy in action, which is focused on results. Let us have a look at an inclusive interview with Peter Wang.
Coveted Magazine – Why have you decided to become an architect?
Peter Wang – Growing up, I loved to draw — but found that I drew hard, straight lines, (buildings and objects) much better than soft, curvy lines (people and animals)! At the risk of sounding like an architect’s cliche, I must admit that I also built a lot of Lego and plastic models. Not only were these creative outlets, but they really helped me develop my three dimensional skills and understanding of how assemblies came together.
CM – Is there anything exciting that you are working on at the moment that you can tell us about? Any new projects?
PW – One exciting current project is the workplace design for Comcast’s new tower in Philadelphia on which Gensler is collaborating with Foster & Partners. In addition to the pleasure of designing with a great firm like F&P, we are re-envisioning the workplace as a user customizable cross functional collaboration space. The workplace will feel bright, open and be a loft-like platform for supporting the work groups today while being flexible enough to accommodate new ways of working as the groups evolve into the future.
CM – How would you describe your style? Do you have a signature touch?
PW – I don’t have a signature style. Our design philosophy at Gensler is to allow our client and their goals be our guide. We craft a design concept and story around our client’s project brief, and strive to create not only an appropriate, but compelling and enlightening design solution.
Overall, the projects of Peter Wang are focused in the creation of inspiring environments. We hope that you have enjoyed this interview. Do not forget that you may find the whole interview in our magazine edition.
