Brothers Chris and Dominic Leong of Leong Leong Architecture grew up in a sleepy Napa Valley town but fell in love with cities as skateboarding teenagers visiting San Francisco. In searching out the best spots for skateboarding, Dominic said, “You find pleasure in the city in the most unexpected places, constantly creating your own space, or using the city in your own way.”
These days, as young architects in New York City they still view their urban environment as a treasure trove of unexpected opportunities, as when they happened to pass by the experimental gallery W/——Project Space in Chinatown and decided to create an installation despite its being challengingly tiny. Rather than focusing on competitions or theoretical projects, they often prefer to do such small real-world projects as a way to experiment with ideas.
