About

Richard Hassell co-founded the Singapore-based architectural practice WOHA in 1994. He is an Adjunct Professor for the School of Design at The University of Western Australia, and a Member of the Architectural Design Review Panel of Singapore’s Land Transport Authority.

With every project, the practice aims to create a matrix of interconnected human-scaled environments. These spaces foster community, enable stewardship of nature, generate biophilic beauty, activate ecosystem services and build resilience.
