ELSWORTHY WANG is based in Toronto, Canada.

Will Elsworthy

Will loves architecture and invention.  He has been happily working in Toronto at Teeple Architects since 2006, and has contributed significantly to projects such as the Perimeter Institute Expansion (Waterloo), 60 Richmond East Housing Co-op (Toronto), the Langara Student Union (Vancouver), and the Scarborough Chinese Baptist Church (Toronto).  Will graduated from the University of Waterloo School of Architecture in 2005 with Deborah, and he is one half of Elsworthy Wang — a duo that engages in speculative projects, real architectures, bike building and big knitting, among other dynamic practices related to making.

Deborah Wang

Based in Toronto, Deborah is an artist, curator, designer and educator.  After eight years of formal architectural education and practice, she left KPMB Architects to pursue a Master of Fine Arts degree in Criticism & Curatorial Practice at the Ontario College of Art & Design University, graduating in 2010.  Deborah has curated and co-curated several exhibitions, and exhibited her art and architectural projects locally.  Her research lies in artistic practices of walking, site-specific installation, and participatory art forms, while her practice attempts to bring together the role of the artist, architect and curator through a series of drawings as instructions for movement, as well as through more traditional forms of art, architecture and exhibition making.  She is the other half of Elsworthy Wang.
