Fook Weng Chan obtained a Master’s in Architecture from the University of Manitoba. He worked for a notable Vancouver practice for fourteen years – eleven as an Associate. During that time, he was the project architect or urban designer for a wide range of project types and scales, winning several design awards.
FWC Architecture was established in 1995. Fook Weng enjoys working closely with owners, builders and craftsmen. The practice is kept small in order to best serve clients and produce work of substance. He works in a low-key manner.
In 2015 Fook Weng was invited to exhibit his work at the 2016 VENICE ARCHITECTURE BIENNALE, the premier contemporary architecture exhibition in the world. The 'TIME-SPACE-EXISTENCE' exhibition at 3 European Cultural Centre palaces features work by over 100 architects from over 50 nations including 2 Canadians.
