Dominic 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.
Dominic received his B.Arch. from the California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo in 2001. In 2003, he received his M.S.A.A.D. (Master of Science in Advanced Architectural Design) from Columbia University, New York, where he graduated with honors.
Dominic’s awards include a 2007 Young Architects Forum award from the Architectural League of New York (currently called The Architectural League Prize for Young Architects and Designers), and a 2006 Graham Foundation Grant, for his interest in the role of research in contemporary architecture education and practice.
