Naked and White
Hong Kong architect Alexander Wong’s creed is ‘Naked Architecture ’, defined as stripped away of all layers of superficiality”. The basis of his work is utilitarian space is beautiful because it is meaningful”. This book presents various of detailed examination of a luxury boatyard (all clean, restful white lines, like a Hockney painting) to Jackie Chan’s house (“Chinese Kung-Fu meets Chinese Modern”, vivid and red) are illustrated by an adroit mixture of Wong’s engaging commentary, plans and quality photography. He is a fine writer and in these snapshots conveys what he is about very well. Naked + White is an excellent introduction to an intriguing character.
anyone know if wong has a website?
