Title: Executive director
Company: llLab.
Design Philosophy:

llLab. is a design studio based in Shanghai, Porto operating within the fields of architecture, design, art, urbanism, research and development. Our work focuses on using design as a tool to improve social and cultural life through various scales, from urban projects to micro-architecture. The principals are driven by an experimental approach that leads to conceptually rigorous and well-executed design projects. Creating distinctive solutions adapted to a context and its users, we set up conceptual platforms for design approaches to grow in time, within their particular contexts, producing site-specific design installations and building projects that both provoke and inspire.
