Edric Choo Poo Liang, Architect
Director & Principal

O2 Design Atelier Sdn Bhd

Born in 1976, Edric Choo Poo obtained his B. Arch from University of Malaya and B.Sc. Housing Building & Planning from University Science of Malaysia. He has traveled around the world including, China, Japan, India, America, France, Finland, England, and Germany. He started his architecture career under a few renowned architecture firms including TR Hamzah & Yeang, ZLG Design, RT+Q, W Architects, SCDA, and WOHA.

He is the founder and director of O2 Design Atelier (O2DA). The studio is based on the model of creative industries. O2DA’s works are not restricted to a specific style but rather responds to the nature of the projects, contexts, local culture, social behavior and formal architecture language. We believe climate change is a very important issue. Each project is the result of a meticulous, in-depth design process rather than a preconception of an end result.

O2DA explores integrated designs for the built environment, moving between master planning, architecture, interior, landscape, and furniture design.

"For me, good architecture responds to the project brief and space requirement, site, context, function, culture and the user. It must be sustainable and environmentally responsive.

My work is always in touch with nature, light and spatial experience, as well as the relationship between space and form.

I believe architecture is a balance between art and science that goes in harmony with the site. Also, I’m always in search of and developing new architecture language, taking into account the past and local culture."

"I have always been a supporter of the values of the 18th century Enlightenment, though I wish that the Enlightenment reflected values of the whole civilized world, not just Western Europe.  The events of recent years-- in the United States but also in many other parts of the world-- have alarmed me.  
I wonder whether the world is ready to find out what is true and what is not, and whether we can have shared views about the kind of planet on which we are fated to live. And that is why our work-- the work of my colleagues and me at Project Zero-- has focused sharply on moral and ethics--- how to decide what is right, and what is wrong, to put forth our views honestly and be prepared to discuss and defend them. See www.thegoodproject.org for more information."
