About Feifei Feng
Hailing from China, Australia and now the US, Feifei Feng is a multidisciplinary designer with a Master of Architecture degree from MIT. She has worked professionally in architecture firms around the world, including Kengo Kuma and Associates in Paris, Kennedy & Violich Architecture (KVA) in Boston, and Tonkin Zulaikha Greer (TZG) in Sydney, and currently holds the role of project designer and manager at Stanley Saitowitz | Natoma Architects in San Francisco. In her work, Feifei has always been interested in examining the cultural and social byproducts of globalization, focusing on the relentless growth in mass-housing developments and the dearth of public space and engagement in China.
Feifei perfectly combines analog and digital in her work by starting with hand illustrations. “I’m truer to myself when I draw – I don’t have that experience using a computer.”
