WOHA is a Singapore-based architecture practice, established in 1994 by Wong Mun Summ and Richard Hassell. Its name is derived from the initial letters of the founders’ surnames. The form and appearance of WOHA’s architecture is always guided by the local context and culture, but also by the local climatic conditions, which determine energy-saving strategies. In order to revitalise their urban environments, WOHA’s structures are designed to harmonise with and incorporate natural ecosystems, and to proactively encourage self-sufficient cities, which will have no need for the destructive use of artificial energy.
