Ang Li is an architect and Assistant Professor at the School of Architecture at Northeastern University. She is the founder of Ang Li Projects, a research-centered design practice that operates at the intersection between architecture, experimental preservation and public art to investigate the maintenance rituals and material afterlives behind architectural production.
Her current research explores the salvage and reuse practices around construction and demolition waste through fieldwork, site-specific installations and material experiments. This work has been featured in exhibitions at the 2019 Chicago Architecture Biennial, the Villa Terra Decorative Arts Museum, the Carnegie Museum of Art, the Echo Art Fair and the Lisbon Architecture Triennial, amongst others. Her writing has been published in numerous journals including the Journal of Architectural Education, Log, Clog, Manifest and Thresholds. Before joining the faculty at Northeastern, Ang was a Visiting Artist at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and the 2015–16 Peter Reyner Banham Fellow at the University at Buffalo. She holds a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Cambridge and a Master’s of Architecture from Princeton University.
