A Director at Kohn Pedersen Fox, Lei Li has over 20 years of design experience in the United States and Asia working on a wide range of project types, including master plans, supertall buildings, office, retail, residential, mixed-use developments, and airports. He has developed particular expertise leading the design of projects in China, working with some of the country’s foremost developers and corporations.
Li’s work is focused on creating project specific design concepts that infuse a project from overall form through surface down to detailing. A case in point, as Senior Designer, his work on China Zun Tower in Beijing centers on sculpting the transformative curving form of the exterior, then carving through to interior to create the distinctive ground floor lobby and dramatic observation deck. The same concept of gradual transformation is carried through in crafting the tower envelop and articulating smaller elements such as the entrance portal, door handles, etc.
On a neighborhood and district scale, Li seeks opportunities for place making and the use human-scaled elements and spaces in balancing competing qualities of space and density. As such, his work on an urban renewal project in Chegongmiao Shenzhen intermingles iconic towers with clustered podium buildings to create a dynamic urban environment, which hosts a series of rich, varying-scale public and semi-public spaces at multiple levels.
Li is a LEED Accredited Professional by U.S. Green Building Council.
