“Common sense and conventional practice prohibit the evolution of architecture.” This is the first quote you find reading Tom Ngo’s Master’s thesis: The Dinner Address, A Venture into Architectural Absurdity. And it’s also the starting point of his artistic work, paintings and drawings, which search nothing but different frameworks of thought to create new architectural solutions normally ruled out due to irrationality. Born in Hong Kong and established in Canada, his background as an architect and his ideas about absurdity to provide alternatives out of logic give his work a paradoxical and whimsical air. Straight lines and gentle colors, funny proportions and impossible perspectives form weird constructions and cities.
