Forging Your Own Path as An Architect (ft. Dong-Ping Wong) | Ep. 49 Educated Guess: A Podcast for Artists

    • Design

Educated Guess is all about bridging the gap for careers in art + design. And, as a result, we spend a lot of time working to understand the complexities of an innovative solution so that we could explain and share it with someone who might just be starting out.



This week, we're joined by someone who’s helped chart that exact same path — Dong-Ping Wong—co-founder of Food New York, Inc. 



Food is a New York-based design studio focused on architecture and environmental design. Their projects range from installations, private residences, set design, giant swimming pools, and more. A partial client list of theirs includes Kanye West, Tom Sachs, Virgil Abloh, and more. For about an hour, we spend time walking through the following questions and topics:


Figuring Out the Right Amount of Iteration 
Collaborating With High-Profile Clients
Finding a Path to More Productive Architecture
Navigating the Field of Architecture in a Slow Economy
