Boston | Hong Kong

Rocker-Lange Architects is an architecture firm located in Boston and Hong Kong. The office works on all scales of architecture and urbanism, and is practicing it through designing, building, researching, writing and teaching. Founded by partners Ingeborg M. Rocker and Christian J. Lange, the office is committed to the design and making of spatial environments that have the capacity to improve and advance the quality of life for the individual and the community. Specializing in installations, urban interventions, cultural and residential projects, the office strives in every project for quality and excellence. It is our utmost goal to deliver architectural spaces that change the world we live in.

Projects materialize out of an in depth investigation of contemporary issues in architecture that are constantly scrutinized. Our work is developed through intensive research in conjunction with the use of innovative digital design methodologies guiding efficiently and creatively the design and construction process. The office has developed a distinctive method for the development of architecture, with an emphasis on open spatial configurations, material transformations and refined detailing and craftsmanship. Underlying themes in the work have focused on the conceptual use of building tectonics, components and materials, modified with both traditional and digital techniques.

Recently Rocker-Lange Architects exhibited their work in the bi-city Biennale in Hong Kong & Shenzhen 2012+2009, and the Venice Biennale 2010. Their work has been published frequently in international magazines ranging from Harvard Design Magazine, Mark Magazine to รก vivre magazine. Currently the office has projects in China and Germany.
