Raymond Woo is a pioneer generation architect who has been in practice for over 40 years. He was involved in winning entries such as the Jurong Town Hall and Bank of Singapore Headquarter, both built in the late 1960s. He is the Principal Arcchitect of Raymond Woo & Associates Architects in 1970 when he won the prestigious Singapore Science Centre Competition single-handedly.
Raymond is known for his distinctive architecture style which stresses on dignified presence and elegance shown in projects such as The Ngee Ann City (1993), Prudential Tower (1998), Equity Plaza (1992) and 78 Shenton Way (1988). Another notable Singapore landmark that he designed is the Changi Airport Boeing 747 Hangar built in 1983. His latest project, the 268 Orchard Road sets a new benchmark in Singapore as the first, in using precision engineered tension cable-net system for double-glazed curtain wall.
Now at 77 years old, he still believes in sharing his wealth of knowledge and experience by serving in juries for local competitions such as the [email protected], Marina Barrage, One-North, Theatres by the Bay and National Arts Gallery. He is also actively involved in advisory committees of the URA, LTA and the BOA and is a fellow of the Singapore Institute of Architects.
