Alvin Huang is a director of Amanda Levete Architects. His current work includes leading the design of the 1.5 million sq ft Central Embassy in Bangkok, and the recently completed Corian Super-surfaces installation in Milan. Huang coordinates the office’s design research with a specific focus on using digital design and new fabrication techniques as drivers in design and construction. This research is used to challenge conventional notions of space and form and to redefine the role of the architect in the procurement process. A Chinese American, Huang received a Masters of Architecture and Urbanism from the AA Design Research Laboratory (2004) and a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the University of Southern California (1998). In 2008 he won the DRL10 Pavilion competition with Alan Dempsey which has been widely published. Huang has been an invited critic and guest lecturer at various universities and institutions in Europe, North America, and China.
