Bang Dang

Bang Dang

Bang has called Dallas his home since he was five years old, and having a Chinese background, has a unique, Eastern/Western take on architecture. The natural inclination to be rational, subtle, and minimal is countered by the urge to be instinctive, brave, and free. Bang’s focus is making architecture that is abstract in its homage to Texas regionalism and subtle in its attempt to be inventive.

Bang’s experience in the field is broad and varied, covering architecture of all types and scales. 
Bang holds a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Texas at Austin and a Master of Architecture from the University of Texas at Arlington, where he was an Adjunct Professor for six years. Bang’s thesis for his graduate degree was on the design and marketability of small, semi-urban, sustainable, prototype dwellings. Bang then went on to teach a variety of design studios including a two semester design/build studio where students design and construct prototype micro houses. 

Bang is a founding partner, with Rizi Faruqui, of the award winning, modern practice FAR + DANG. The work of the 6-year old firm is varied in typology and scale but all the projects have a rigorous focus on making modern spaces via a focus on context, structure, and materiality. A good portion of the firm’s current work involves making smaller, speculative dwellings within the East Dallas neighborhoods, but a number of interesting commercial and institutional projects are also in the design stage. A rigorous and proactive research agenda and a passion for exploring ideas of space and lifestyle are the foundations of the firm’s design process.
