Architectural Drawing
Wortham Fellow


Amelyn Ng is an Australian architect, writer, and cartoonist, and a 2019-2021 Wortham Fellow at Rice University. Her Fellowship research looks at issues in graphics, epistemology, and theories of information-richness in architecture. Her work aims to expand discourse on architectural images in historical, material and humorous registers.

Amelyn holds a Master of Science in Critical, Curatorial and Conceptual Practices (CCCP) at Columbia GSAPP, and a Master of Architecture and a Bachelor of Environments from Melbourne University. She has been an invited guest critic at the Rhode Island School of Design, Texas A&M, and Melbourne University. Prior to coming to Rice, she worked for Columbia Books on Architecture and the City, the Avery Review, VOLUME and Performa, and co-organized public forums on art and architecture such as Works in Progress in New York and PROCESS in Melbourne. Her writing has appeared in Avery Shorts, VOLUME, MONU, Critical Planning Journal and Assemble Papers, with forthcoming work in PLAT and e-flux Architecture.
