Business Description
Informed by a multi-cultural background, nurtured in the United States, formed in Europe and with an umbilical cord still attached to China, David Ling founded David Ling Architects in 1992. After training as an associate with Richard Meier, I.M. Pei, and Emilio Ambasz, Ling established an international practice in the U.S., Europe and Asia.

Specializing in exhibition spaces, creative offices, high-end retail, high-end residences and institutional spaces, the essence of Ling's architectural work is the artistic integration of space, form, light and function enriched by materiality. As all projects are treated as unique, so too is Ling’s creative vocabulary, tailored to diverse clients, sites, budgets and programs. Ling’s approach is a sculpted choreography of opposites, forming a dialogue of interlocking spaces and forms articulated in a crafted use of materials, ennobling space and form through materiality and light.

Ling’s seventeen years of work has received numerous international awards such as the Interior Design Magazine’s 2007 Future Furniture Award and 2003 Kitchen and Bath Designer Leader Award, Benjamin Moore’s 2006 Hue Awards for Best Residential Interiors, the Municipal Arts Society’s 2002 National Design Award, the 2001 Best Exhibition Design from ICFF, and the Bienal Miami + Beach 1999 Gold and Silver medals.

Ling’s work has been published in numerous international magazines and newspapers, indluding the New York Times, Interior Design, Interiors, House and Garden, Elle Décor, Metropolitan Home, Dwell, Wallpaper, Arte, Dwell Video, Casa da Abitare, Interni, Architektur und Wohnen, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Vogue, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, VM+SD, and Burlington Magazine.

Ling has held teaching positions at Parsons School of Design and University of Nuremburg and has served on design juries at Interiors Magazine, Interior Design Magazine/Hospitality Magazine, Harvard Graduate School of Design, Columbia University and the University of Pennsylvania.
