Le Tang AIA, LEED AP BD+C
Associate / Project Architect
Le always explains to people that being an architect is more than just a career and wearing black clothes, it's a lifestyle. Different projects lead architects to different places, allowing them to experience different cultures and meet different people. And, for Le, it is the challenge of the exploration that makes his job exciting. Each architectural piece that results from a response to these parameters stands deep and unique.
A registered architect and LEED accredited professional, he holds professional licenses in California, Pennsylvania and New York. Le gained extensive experience in various architecture offices around the world, including Atelier Jean Nouvel in Paris, EM Architecture in Philadelphia and SOM in both Chicago and San Francisco. He has worked on a broad range of projects including large scale master plans, multi-block mixed use development, highrise office towers and university education centers as well as small-scale renovations. Prior to joining Page, Le worked for SOM in their San Francisco office where he was the project architect for Monterey Conference Center.
Le holds a Master of Architecture degree from the University of Pennsylvania and a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture from Zhejiang University with national first grade honors. He was one of eight finalists for the 2013 SOM Fellowship in the US.
Le believes good architecture has its own character and attitude. It forms as a representation of vernacular culture and becomes a vessel for peoples’ emotions and memories. He strives to achieve this in each of his projects.
Outside of the studio, Le loves - and is very good at - playing ping-pong and driving along the twisting roads of the California coast with his windows down.
