The exhibition is divided into four chapters featuring blown-up photographs, plans, models and text representing 19 of Woha?s most important projects.
Woha?s architecture is influenced by Southeast Asia?s culture and climate. The studio?s early projects, beginning in 1990, are single-family homes suited to the tropical climate.
The buildings architects Mun Summ Wong and Richard Hassell design today are primarilyskyscrapers and large-scale projects featuring energy-saving, sustainable technical and construction techniques. The architects have transformed elements of local architecture into contemporary forms which fit into the surrounding landscape.
