WOHA was formed in 1994 by Wong Mun Summ and Richard Hassell, and has long been acknowledged as one of Asia’s most innovative and influential urban design practices.
Patrick Bingham-Hall is a writer and photographer who has worked closely with WOHA for many years.

Garden City Mega City is a collaboration between WOHA Architects and Patrick Bingham-Hall.
Garden City Mega City is a proposal to save our cities... in order to save our planet. The growth of mega cities is destroying our planet, and it concerns all of us. City planning and construction is no longer the preserve of specialists, as the biggest decisions must be made by society at large.
This book has two halves. One presents the Mega City set of problems, and the second half provides a Garden City set of solutions.
Garden City Mega City illustrates the depressing realities of life in the mega cities, and documents the ill-advised planning decisions that created such blighted environments.
But Garden City Mega City also proposes an escape from what appears to be an inevitable fate, one of terminal dysfunction.
Mega cities have been re-imagined as 21st century garden cities - dense and vertical, yet sociable and sustainable. The fundamental strategies and principles of these new garden cities are explained and illustrated, as are WOHA’s large-scale prototypes : many of which have already been built.
Essays on the current plight of urban Asia, and an overall analysis of WOHA's strategies are written by Patrick Bingham-Hall. The book is abundantly illustrated by contextual photos, as well as detailed images of WOHA's proposals and completed projects.
Garden City Mega City has been a worldwide best-seller since its publication in mid-2016, and has already become required reading on the syllabus for architectural, urban planning and built envronment departments.

WOHA 建築事務所是新加坡最富國際名聲的事務所之一,於1994年成立, 20多年來獲獎無數。 
WOHA 沒有特定的設計語言及風格,因為這會限制項目的可能性,降低建築師的創造力,扼殺創新和探索的機會。他們堅持這樣的理念:創造多樣的、充滿創造力的、令人興奮的環境是建築師們的責任,他們認為每一個項目都應當為這個世界增添理想的人性氛圍,從而不斷完善城市建築環境。
WOHA 的設計哲學就是:每一個項目都是獨特的,設計中應當包含項目的獨特個性;每一個設計都緊扣著地理、文化、歷史、自然環境、氣候、社會及綠化可持續性主題。 
他們認為好的設計源於不斷地研究和學習,並且能夠將科技和藝術融入其中。堅持實地深入研究,經過一系列對於選址、氣候、科技與工程的考察,與深化部門、行業權威、業主和使用者以及物業管理方的討論,綜合各方需求和意見,最終完成設計方案。  提出的方案圖紙就好像是專屬這個項目的語言和靈魂一樣,合適而趨近完美。
他們設計的空間非常多樣化,有商業、私人住宅、醫院、機場、展覽展示空間、宗教建築、混合建築體等。WOHA 由兩位合夥人共同成立,分別是黃文森 (Wong Mun Summ) 與哈賽爾 (Richard Hassell) ─節錄自idoob

Pesaro Publishing was founded in 1999 by Patrick Bingham-Hall – a well-known architectural photographer and writer – who is involved in all aspects of content and production.
Pesaro coordinates every stage of a book's development and production – photography, text, graphic design, pre-press, printing, and sales – working with the best design and production professionals to publish books of the highest content and quality.

Patrick Bingham-Hall is an architectural photographer, available for commissions worldwide. He is also an architectural writer and the editor of Pesaro Publishing, which specialises in architecture and design monographs.

He switched to architectural photography in the early 1980s, and travelled the world to study architectural history and to photograph classic buildings. Many of these photographs were included in his first (self-published) book Monumental Irony. In the 1990s he took the photographs for many books on Australian architecture, and was selected as editor of the book that documented the architecture for the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games. He also wrote Austral Eden, an idiosyncratic history of Australian architecture, and contributed articles to magazines in Australia and England. In 1999, he formed his own publishing company, Pesaro Publishing, which was to publish many books on Australian architecture within a few years. Bingham-Hall was usually editor and photographer. Most of his early books for Pesaro were done in collaboration with Philip Goad, an architectural writer and academic from Melbourne. After publishing Architecture Bali in 2000, Bingham-Hall decided to expand his publishing into Asia, while continuing to produce books on Australian architecture. He also writes many of the books himself, particularly on tropical architecture in Asia. He is the author of monographs on WOHA Architects, Guz Architects, Peter Stutchbury, Colin K. Okashimo, K2LD Architects, Cicada Landscape Architects, LOOK Architects, and a book on houses in the Asia-Pacific region.
