William graduated from National University of Singapore (NUS) with a Master’s Degree in Urban Design in 2012, and acquired his Bachelor’s Degree in Architecture from the University of Santo Tomas (UST) in 2002.
Together with friends, he formed a partnership in 2005, and finally founded WTA Architecture and Design Studio in 2007. In the 18 years of his professional career, he has worked on hundreds of projects ranging from retail shops and housing projects to large scale malls, residential condominiums, hotels and master-planned developments.
As a firm believer in sustainable planning and the advantages of urban living, he tries to imagine a better-curated more design-focused society where beautiful things and pleasant environments are ubiquitous, even in the densest city centers. He avidly collects superhero toys and religiously reads comic books and fantasy novels. On the rare day-off from architecture, he wanders around as a student of life, observing urban conditions.
