Called "incremental urbanism," they use it as a guiding principle in many of their projects. In another unique approach contemporary urban living, the firm is exploring multigenerational living in a number of their residential projects.
Williamson Chong is further investigating innovative urban solutions by exploring wood technologies and computational design.
“Our architectural projects reflect the changing trajectories of cities,” Chong tells Architectural Record. “Toronto makes it easy for us, because people here are willing to try out new ways of living.”
