Ang Li is an architect and Visiting Artist in the department of Architecture, Interior Architecture, and Designed Objects at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her recent work explores questions of appropriation and historical sampling in contemporary design culture through drawings, publications, and built installations. She is particularly interested in cross-disciplinary approaches to architectural production that focus on the material history and cultural agency of existing building practices. Ang has participated in exhibitions at the Echo Art Fair in Buffalo, New York, the Lisbon Architecture Triennale, and Storefront for Art and Architecture. Her writing and work has been published in Pidgin, Clog, Thresholds, Manifest, Abitare, Wired, and Blueprint. Before coming to the SAIC she was a Visiting Assistant Professor and Peter Reyner Banham Fellow at the University at Buffalo. She holds a BA in architecture from the University of Cambridge, and a M.Arch. from Princeton University, where she also served as an editor of Pidgin Magazine.
