COLLECTIVE is an International Architecture Office practicing Architecture, Interiors and Urban Design.
We are a research and idea-driven practice that offer powerful concepts, insist on Clarity, Beauty and Function.
While COLLECTIVE remains dedicated to the realization of Architecture, we also engage in areas beyond the traditional boundaries of the built, operating also a Research Unit and Design Consultancy, investigating and practicing in Academia, Scenography, Exhibition Architecture, Curation, Graphics, Experiential Art, Preservation and Cultural Analysis.
Founded in 2015, COLLECTIVE is currently directed by Betty Ng, Juan Minguez, Katja Lam and Sanny Ng. We are currently a team that includes architects, designers and academics with an international background from Hong Kong / China, Europe and North America. COLLECTIVE also operates with a network of other architecture or design studios internationally, to form larger teams for cross- disciplinary projects or big scale Architecture and Urban Design projects globally.
The directors have previously practiced closely with architecture offices including those of Pritzker Prize winning studios of Rem Koolhaas/OMA, Herzog & de Meuron ; and also at various international practices including Diller & Scofidio + Renfro, Safdie Architects, Massimiliano Fuksas, Frechilla & López-Peláez Arquitectos, SO-IL, and at Hong Kong local practices with Aedas and RMJM on Architecture, Urban Design and Interior projects worldwide.
Building on convergence and a ‘collective’ of diverse merits, we engage design with our team's wide spectrum of specificities, and also with collaborators world wide in various disciplines, challenging the status quo of the architecture office.
Our project experiences reach those in the European Union, United Kingdom, Russia, North America, China, South East Asia, Australia, Africa and the Middle East. We are globally oriented and strongly rooted in Asia.
COLLECTIVE has offices in Hong Kong, Madrid and New York.
