Ang Li is an architect and Assistant Professor at the School of Architecture at Northeastern University. Alongside her teaching she maintains a collaborative design practice that works through material experiments and built interventions to explore the role of reference and reuse in contemporary architectural production. Her most current research examines the latent design opportunities that arise out of architectural obsolescence from radical approaches to preservation and adaptive reuse to the emerging second-hand material economies of demolition practices.
Ang has participated in exhibitions at the Echo Art Fair in Buffalo, New York, the 2013 Lisbon Architecture Triennale, and Storefront for Art and Architecture. Her writing and work has been published in Log, Clog, Thresholds, Manifest, Abitare, Wired, and Blueprint. Before joining the faculty at Northeastern she was a Visiting Artist at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and the 2015-16 Peter Reyner Banham Fellow at the University at Buffalo. She holds a BA in architecture from the University of Cambridge, and a M.Arch. from Princeton University, where she also served as an editor of Pidgin Magazine. Previously, she worked for number of architectural offices in the US and internationally, including Adjaye Associates (New York) and Allies and Morrison Architects (London).
