F A R   +  D A N G  is a multidisciplinary design office based in Dallas, Texas that is firmly engaged in the complexities and multiplicities of contemporary life. The firm’s research, strategy, and work focuses on transforming intangible ideas into spatial realities and physical form.

Founding partners Bang Dang and Rizi Faruqui have both called Dallas, Texas home from an early age, and with diverse backgrounds bring a unique, Eastern/Western take on architecture.  The natural inclination to be rational, subtle, and minimal is countered by the urge to be instinctive, brave, and free.  The firm’s focus is on making architecture that is abstract in its homage to Texas regionalism and subtle in its inventiveness.

Bang and Rizi both hold a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Texas at Austin and Bang also holds a Master of Architecture from the University of Texas at Arlington, where both Partners currently serve as Professors in Practice.  

The work of the 12-year old firm is varied in typology and scale but all the projects have a rigorous focus on making modern spaces informed by a study of the existing context, the rationale of structure, and the appropriateness of materiality.
