Born Paris, France, 1978

Raphael Crespin is a French architect and designer based in Hong Kong

His approach is often experimental at the intersection of design, art, and architecture. Raphael is particularly interested in exploring the creative potential of emergent digital tools and their ability to address new ways of thinking design and architecture narratives

Prior to establishing his practice, Raphael worked with various offices in Asia and Europe. As a Postdoc Researcher at the Singapore University of Technology and Design, he participated in the Grand Challenge Program for Sustainable Built Environment in association with MIT. One of his most relevant experiences was certainly with dECOi Architects, an architectural firm known for its radical approach where Raphael actively contributed to the development of advanced design strategies for numerous award-winning projects

Raphael received his Master of Design and Interior Architecture from ESAG Penninghen in Paris
