Cherry Fung


Cherry is a Staff Designer whose background includes experience with academic and commercial projects, housing, and installations for national and international exhibitions. She has a special interest in architecture's capacity to influence people's physical experience of space, both as it fosters community and nurtures connection, and as it guides individuals'  interactions. She's a perceptive listener and brings a natural ability to synthesize detail with big-picture thinking to her work at AW–ARCH.

Cherry received her M.Arch. from Harvard University's Graduate School of Design, and a B.A. in Dance and Movement Studies, summa cum laude.
