无论是什么项目，Ben Wood STUDIO SHANGHAI 都努力探求形式与功能之间的新联系，向人们展现一种全新的空间感受。
Benjamin Wood, AIA, received his Masters in Architecture from MIT in 1984. His first commission in China was Xintiandi, a cultural entertainment district in Shanghai.
Ben’s most significant contribution on a major project outside of China was as the Chief Architect of New Soldier Field in Chicago, home of the Chicago Bears. Co-designed with his former partner Carlos Zapata, New Soldier Field was named by the New York Times as one of the ten best buildings of 2003.
Following the completion of the New Soldier Field, Ben set up a full time design studio in Shanghai. In the Fall of 2005 Delphine Yip, a long time associate, became Ben’s partner. Delphine is a graduate of the Harvard School of Design and is responsible for many of the Studio’s most notable projects.
As a team of multi-lingual designers from all over the world, Ben Wood STUDIO SHANGHAI has helped transform the urban landscape of modern China. After our first project in China Shanghai Xintiandi, a commercial cultural entertainment district with rebuilt traditional Shanghai Shi Ku Men architectures, we have been working on projects in a very diverse category. Large scale projects include mixed use projects like the “Tiandies” in Hangzhou, Chongqing, Wuhan and Foshan, Expo Chinese Housing Project on the Huangpu River, resort complex “Dan Gui Park” in Suzhou, commercial projects on Beijing Qianmen Boulevard, Shanghai north Bund and West side of Hangzhou, large villa/high rise residential complexes in Shanghai and Beijing, etc. We also work on various boutique hotels and resorts all over China. Our passion and professionalism not only reflect on the large scale projects but also on small project like the exclusive private club house for the New Huangpu Group on the bund.
Ben Wood STUDIO SHANGHAI strives to explore new relationships between form and function for any project, and hopefully offers users a fresh way to experience space.
