Ray Wang is a designer and research scientist with The Living and joined Autodesk Research in 2014. His most recent project has been leading the design and fabrication of "Black Lake", a black-box theatre for Bjork's retrospective exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. Other projects he's worked on with The Living include MoMA PS1's "Hy-Fi" mushroom brick tower, the 2015 Quantified Self conference & exhibition, and Princeton University's School for Embodied Computation.
Along with working at The Living, Ray is currently an Adjunct Professor at Columbia University's Graduate School for Architecture, Planning and Preservation, in New York, where he teaches graduate studios and the school's summer Introduction to Architecture program. He is interested in how advances in technologies can open up new methods of communicating architectural ideas and narratives, with a focus on real-time visualizations and interactive experiences. Ray graduated from Columbia University with a Masters of Architecture degree, and received his Bachelors of Architectural Studies at the University of Waterloo in Canada.
