Chris Leong, Leong Leong Architecture
Leong Leong Architecture is a New York-based design office practicing in the fields of architecture and culture. It was founded in 2009 by brothers Chris and Dominic Leong, who believe that the practice of architecture gains relevance through a constant dialogue with other disciplines, cultures, thinkers, and makers. Leong Leong Architecture has completed projects in New York, Seoul, Hong Kong, Los Angeles, and Napa Valley, California.
The Leong brothers were born in St. Helena, CA, a small town in the Napa Valley.
Chris received his B.A., from the University of California, Berkeley, in 2000, where he was awarded the C.E.D. Alumni Award. In 2006, he received his M.Arch. from Princeton University in New Jersey, and was awarded the Princeton Graduate Fellowship.
Chris worked at Gluckman Mayner Architects in New York City from 2000 to 2001. From 2006 to 2009, he worked at SHoP Architects in New York, where he led a team in the redesign of Madison Square Garden, among other large projects. He also taught at the New Jersey Institute of Technology, and he has been an invited critic at various schools of architecture.
