Priscilla Wong

Architectural Assistant / Designer

Priscilla joined Nissen Richards Studio in 2019, having graduated with a Distinction in MA Architecture from the Bartlett School of Architecture. Inbetween her studies, Priscilla worked at Heatherwick Studio, where she worked on installations as well as large scale office projects.

In her fourth year project, Priscilla became interested in the relationship between food and architecture. The investigation into the parallels between cooking and designing culminated in a vegetarian restaurant in Turin, where the design of the plate and cutlery was as important as the building itself. Her fifth year project explored an alternative heritage practice in the Ancient Agora of Athens, where the site is reactivated as a public space; restoring its original function but finding form in playful investigations of material and human agency. It sought to re-assess the ways in which we engage with sites and objects that are deemed archaeology, by exploring the architectural mediation of archaeology and subverting the status on an archaeological site.
As an ongoing exploration, she is interested in the concept of craft, and how we mediate between analogue and digital processes. These ideas have been further explored through a series of design and built projects for festivals in the UK.
