Her challenge “Producing Nature” explores the use of crops in architecture and its planetary outcomes. It considers vegetation as atmospheric design—grown, saved and transported globally—and charts the spaces and species concerned in the creation of “nature.” Inherently interdisciplinary, this exploration seeks to foster cross-pollination concerning architecture and other fields and to speculate on new environmental engagements.

Wong gained a master of architecture from Columbia College Graduate Faculty of Architecture, Setting up and Preservation and was nurtured with the Kohn Pedersen Fox Traveling Fellowship, Award for Excellence in Whole Design, Lucille Smyser Lowenfish Memorial Prize, William Kinne Fellows Travelling Prize and Fred L. Liebmann Reserve Award. She cofounded : (pronounced “colon”), a publication and workshop dissecting the rhetoric and media that are rooted in the field of architecture.
