Doris Sung
Architect and Designer
Rolling Hills, CA
2014 USA Fellow

This award was generously supported by Samuel Hoi.

Doris Sung works at the intersection of architecture, applied technology and design to explore the possibilities of thermobiometals. She creates temperature sensitive, responsive installations that engage the public and reflect on the potential of materiality on the environment. She describes her practice as embracing a paradigm shift away from the static towards the dynamic and her provocative objects and dynamic surfaces inspire us to think differently about the entire field of architecture. Sung is an Assistant professor at USC and principal of DOSU Studio Architecture. Her kinetic structures and installations have been shown at MCA/SB, Materials&Application Gallery, MOCA and the TextielMuseum in the Netherlands. She is the recipient of the 2013 World Technology Award and American Institute of Architects Honor Award.
