Faculty Research Connections Profile

Peter Wong is an Associate Professor of Architecture at the University of North Carolina-Charlotte, where he has taught architectural design, history, and theory since 1988. His scholarly efforts include a translation of Vittorio Gregotti’s treatise, Inside Architecture (w/ Francesca Zaccheo, MIT, 1996) and a study of Shanghai shikumen housing in the article “Chinese Puzzle” published in Diversity and Design (Routledge, 2015). These written projects draw from research exploring urban housing, 1950s and 60s building culture, and the experience and meaning of contemporary architectural space. His current research investigates spatial perception in domestic interior realms, utilizing eye-tracking hardware and software to reveal areas of visual attention in housing environments. This work is performed as an interdisciplinary project with colleagues from the Department of Computer Science at UNC Charlotte.

Peter received his degrees from the University of Washington (BA 1981) and the University of Pennsylvania (MArch 1985), and is a licensed architect in the states of Pennsylvania and North Carolina. He has received design awards from the National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA) and the Charlotte Chapter of the AIA. Currently he directs the School’s undergraduate third year design core and offers advanced social housing studios at the masters level. He has taught and led numerous study abroad programs in Italy, Spain, and China.
