Ming Wu, AIA


Ming Wu’s appreciation for architecture and cities has been influenced by the many places he lived while growing up, both within the U.S. and abroad. With his physical surroundings constantly changing, Ming’s attention became focused on the relationships people make with places and buildings. Ming has spent his 30-year career applying this perspective to projects ranging from city center skyscrapers to large scale, master planned developments, both domestically and abroad. His current focus is on taking EE&K’s expertise in large-scale design and development global.
