About Studio Shanghai
Architecture design studio Studio Shanghai is an architecture firm and team who believe that the building of habitable structures is not an exercise in theoretical design or a prescient inspiration of an individual designer or architect. Instead, we work with culture, climate, physical and spiritual elements, and flora and fauna of the region to make places that help people know where they are, and by extension know who they are. In other words, we are dedicated to creating places in which people feel they belong.
Studio Shanghai has planned and designed many cities, villages, buildings, and interiors to uphold a sense of lively and vibrant accessibility. Shanghai Xintiandi was our architectural practice first project in Shanghai China and has grown to be an integral part of Shanghai and its culture. Soldier Fields Stadium in Chicago, USA transcended the conventions of stadium design. For many years, we lived in ancient houses of Dong Hua Li in Foshan to learn the physical and spiritual language of the region before we designed anything for Lingnan Tiandi.
And the best is yet to come.
The Studio Shanghai team is international and dedicated. Delphine Yip became Partner in 2005 after working with Ben Wood for almost a decade in Cambridge, MA and then Shanghai. She played an important role in many of the Studio’s project until she left Studio Shanghai in 2014.
