Born in Hong Kong and based in London, Angel is interested in challenging assumed traditions in our built environment and translating obscured narratives into spatial qualities.
In her first year at RCA, she researched diminishing historical crafts and experimented with the digitisation of age-old ritualistic and culturally significant objects made and used by indigenous communities. This year, she examined the significance of microbes in architectural thinking and explored the implementation of probiotic understandings to the co-living environment. Her projects have encompassed a multidisciplinary methodology, often combining films, animation, physical models and material experimentations.
Prior to joining RCA, Angel was an undergraduate architecture student at the University of Bath. She worked as an architectural assistant in London and Hong Kong when she was involved in various mixed-use residential and façade design projects, as well as architectural competitions.
