This year marks the 50th year since Professor Fong graduated from School of Architecture, and his tenth year teaching here at the School. Started his architectural practice upon graduation and has been licensed since 1968. In addition to his practice Professor Fong was a principal in a family furniture business manufacturing rattan and wicker furniture for the Hospitality business. His architecture and furniture designs have been published in numerous magazines and newspapers. I feel that I have been given the gift of design, drawing, and visualizing and hope that I can share these gifts as a tool for your architects. The journey from head to hand to paper is a very different journey than through the computer.
