下面请跟随我们,一起来认识刘好扬先生。

We had a brief interview with him:




是什么吸引你进入设计行业?

What attracted you to a career 

in the design industry? 


刘好扬:我的父母都在医院工作,从小他们就希望我将来能成为一名医生,这对他们来说是个显而易见的决定。但我对设计行业充满热情,这对我来说是一种本能。我从小就喜欢画画,用形状、外表和颜色来创造一些东西。但遗憾的是,直到大学我才得以真正开始建筑设计的学习。

Liu: I grew up in a family that both my parents were working for the local hospital in China. Ever since then, they were all hoped that I could become a doctor someday which is a no-brainer for them. But I am passionate about design industry, which is instinct for me. I always love to draw, create something with shapes, form, and colour when I grow up. But unfortunately, I could not choose to study architecture until later.


刘好扬:我的设计生涯始于18岁那年,当时我正在爱尔兰留学。我去了沃特福德理工学院(WIT)的建筑学院,那里的课程设计很棒,并且很幸运的是,建筑师伦佐·皮亚诺(Renzo Piano)是我的校外监审员(External Examiner)。我喜欢设计行业,无论是建筑或室内设计。因为设计可以让我们创造一个尺度合适的、并且能与城市或环境相适应的建筑或内部空间,以舒适地满足人们的需求。

Liu: My design career began when I went to Ireland at the age of 18. I went to the school of Architecture at WIT, it was a really good course and lucky enough Renzo Piano was my external examiner. I like the design industry, It doesn’t matter architecture or interior because it can create a building or an interior space that can fits into the urban or environment contour with the right scale to comfortably serve people’s needs. 




你在WATG和Wimberly Interiors上海分部

的一天是如何度过的?

What does a normal day look 

at WATG and Wimberly Interiors Shanghai 

look like for you? 


刘好扬:我在事务所的一天其实是很充实和有趣的。WATG是一家备受信赖的设计公司,能在这里与世界各地的设计人才合作,我感到很幸运。因此,同团队一同讨论中国项目的设计是非常有趣的,大家可以碰撞出很多灵感。在上午,我经常会与美国团队通话,特别是在疫情期间。然后在一天的大部分时间里,我会和上海团队一起工作,并与新加坡团队保持沟通。有趣的是,几乎所有的客户都喜欢在下午晚些时候或晚上联系我们。那是一天中最繁忙的时刻,而且我经常需要在那段时间与伦敦的同事沟通工作。

Liu: My day in the studio is actually quite full and fun. As a gaolable design firm, it is fortunate that you be able to work with all the design talents across the world. So, It is so much fun to review/discuss the design for China projects and I’m so inspired by our designers. Most of my morning times would be on calls with US team, especially during the pandemic time. Then during the most part of the day I would be working with our Shanghai team as well as on calls with Singapore. It is kind of funny that almost all our clients like to contact us in Shanghai around later afternoon or evening time. That is the busiest time of the day plus I’m often talk with London around the same time. 




你最喜欢的国内旅行目的地是哪里?

为什么喜欢那个地方?

What is your favourite 

domestic tourism destination and why? 


刘好杨:我有很多喜欢去的地方,但有一个地方让我记忆犹新——云南省普洱市一个叫西盟的小镇。云南省是中国一个非常受欢迎的目的地,但我想说大多数中国人都不知道西盟。只是因为我在WATG工作,才有机会拜访一些我在平常生活中可能永远不会去的地方。

Liu: There are many places in China that I like to travel to, but one place stick to my memory is the town called Ximeng, which is the city of Puer, Yunan Province. Yunan province is a very popular destination in China but I would say most of the Chinese people don’t know Ximeng. Only because working for WATG, I get the chances to visit some the places which I may never visit in my normal life. 


神奇之地

A magical  place


大约是七八年前,因工作原因,我与WATG加州团队设计副总裁Tom Fo一起前往西盟。那是一个神奇的地方,也是一段奇妙的旅程。然而,当时去那里很困难,我从思茅机场出发花了大约5个小时的车程。西盟位于云南省的西南部,从外部很难抵达该地,因为该镇有3000多亩的河谷,而其余都是山区。由于它是如此遥远的地方,加上地貌的性质,建设道路是非常困难的。整个行程中,汽车都是在悬崖峭壁旁和连绵不断的山脉中行驶。美丽的自然风光和丰富的植被让你感到非常放松。

I was in Ximeng about 7-8 years ago for work with Tom Fo.  It was a magical place, and amazing experience. However, it was difficult to get there at that time, and was took me about 5 hours drive from Simao airport.  Ximeng is located Southwest of Yunan, it is very hard to get there because the town has river valley for more than 3000 acres, the rest are all mountain area. Because it is so far out and the nature of the landscape, road system is not easy to build. The entire trip was drive through cliffs and rolling mountains. Beautiful natures and variety of vegetations made you feel so relax.


超过24个少数民族居住在那儿,当然,佤族是当地规模最大的少数民族之一。那里的人们非常友好,喜欢唱歌和跳舞。他们用树干做鼓,跳舞时摆动长长的羽毛。他们还喝自己酿造的特制米酒。对我来说,这绝对是一种全新的、不同的、完全意想不到的文化。

Ximeng has more than 24 types of minorities living there and of course Wa minority is one of the largest. People are so friendly there, love singing and dancing. They use tree trunks as drum, swing long hairs when they dance. They also drink special rice wine made by themselves. It is definitely something new and different to me, completely unexpected culture.


那里有一个最受欢迎的目的地,你必须前往,叫做龙潭湖和木依吉神谷。如果让我简单描述一下这种感觉,你就像在 “夺宝奇兵(Indiana Jones)” 中一样。木依吉是佤族人的神,整个峡谷铺满了佤族人数百年来祭祀神灵所留下的水牛头骨。

One of the most popular destination you have to visit is called Longtan Lake and Muyiji Valley. It’s like you are in “Indiana Jones”, if I have to describe the feeling in short. Muyiji Valley is the god of Wa people, it covers with full of buffalo heads which are the offering of Wa people’s sacrificial activities for many years. 


西盟之旅令人难忘,西盟是一个非常特别的目的地,我很期待再次拜访此地。

My trip to Ximeng was memorable and it is special and different destination, I would love to visit it again.
