Kwong Von Glinow


Kwong Von Glinow is an award-winning architecture practice based in Chicago founded in 2017 by Lap Chi Kwong and Alison Von Glinow on the belief that architecture is meant to be enjoyed. The practice builds the thoroughly enjoyable from the slightly familiar. Their work translates forward-looking architectural concepts into playful designs with broad appeal. Taking an optimistic and explorative approach, KVG focuses on creating innovative living environments, places for cultural engagement, urban public space, and contemporary workspaces. Kwong Von Glinow are recipients of the 2018 Architectural League Prize of New York for Young Architects, have received a Graham Foundation Grant for their project Smuggling Architecture exhibited at the Swiss Architecture Museum in Basel, Switzerland, and have been selected for the inaugural commission for the Designing a Better Chicago Pavilion along the Chicago Riverwalk for their project Give me a minute, please!
