Steven Fong received both a professional architecture degree and a Master’s degree from Cornell University. He has taught studios at Cornell University, Rice University, Syracuse University and University of Virginia; and held a Baker-Nord fellowship at Case Western Reserve University. He is a research partner in the Toronto studio of Khoury Levit Fong. His academic work has focussed on topical urban issues. He has worked with Neptis Foundation on its regional growth papers, and held a Graham Foundation grant for studying the Great Lakes cities’ waterfronts.

His office’s recent hospitality work has received recognition, including Forbes Top 3 Toronto restaurants of 2017 (Kiin), BlogTO’s 2016 best tea café in Toronto (Plentea), and a Canadian Interiors magazine best of year 2016 award (Tokyo Smoke).
