Abigail Chang

Abigail Chang is a designer and educator from Los Angeles. Her practice is interested in subtle encounters that are driven by material qualities and details, and responds to currents in contemporary culture. Her work has been exhibited internationally, including the 2019 Lisbon Architecture Triennale, the 2021 Seoul Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism, and as a solo exhibition, “Reflections of a Room,” at Volume Gallery in 2022. Her research and writing investigate the role windows and screens have as framing devices and architectural apparatuses in the built environment. Her work is supported by the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts and UIC College of Architecture, Design and the Arts, where she is a Visiting Assistant Professor. Prior to starting her practice, she worked in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Basel and Tokyo at firms including Norman Kelley, SO–IL and Herzog & de Meuron. She has a Bachelor of Arts in Architectural Studies from UCLA with distinction, and a Masters in Architecture from Harvard GSD, where she was awarded the Takenaka Fellowship.
