Bio




Under the design collective of Temporary Office, Yee Foo and Douglas, sometimes in collaboration with their friends and colleagues, have worked on several projects crossing the boundaries of architecture, public space and preservation. With a strong focus on historic research and precedence, the collaborative seeks to constructively respond to the ever-changing needs of our environment in a rational yet playful way.
