Wang, Szu-Yi  王 思 懿

1991, Taichung, Taiwan


With her working experience of urban research/programs in a close distance with local contexts, Szu-Yi Wang (TW) studied in Rotterdam and keep developing her interdisciplinary practice as an (interior) architect, designer, artist-researcher for projects from site-specific to intercultural issues. She works on the topics of interior/interiority, social-cultural crafts, encoding/decoding multi-media, and event programs of urban cultures.

Graduated as an interior architect researcher, Szu-Yi takes ‘the interior’ as a lens looking into intimate, tender gestures toward spatial issues rather than limited by its scale. Her works present in a poetic and surreal sense; they are her inquiries to more inclusive relationships between human and nature, object and subject, urban landscape and the environment. She practices her unique sensibility on design methods and aesthetics. 

Based in Rotterdam, she is developing her research methodology of urban drifting in order to excavate the distinct, poetic perspectives of this transforming city.
