Hsinming Fung



Ming’s design practice is energized by her lifelong commitment to the arts and education. She brings purpose, creativity and high production standards to an architectural practice widely admired for innovation and experimentation. As design partner, Ming has utilized a refined design palette towards the realization of each project, including the award-winning temporary Towell Library at UCLA, the 50-acre master plan for the Los Angeles Arts Park, and the Menlo-Atherton Performing Arts Center. Among her recent projects are a new performing arts center at CalArts and design of the Chapel of the North American Martyrs in Sacramento.

A leading figure in architectural education, Ming is in demand world-wide as a critic and lecturer. She has twice held the Eero Saarinen Chair at Yale University among other academic chairs. In recent years Ming was awarded the Gold Medal Award by AIA Los Angeles, served as Presidential Appointee to the National Endowment for the Arts Council and was a recipient of the National Endowment for the Arts Rome Prize Advance Fellowship.
