High quality and inventive design has always been part of the Sda design ethos, which we value and adopt ourselves at Seam. On our past projects together we are always thrilled to be a part of their journey and their projects. We are honored to be a part of the extended Sda family of collaborative partners. From completing Corian Supersurfaces and working together on Central Embassy when he was a Director at Future SystemsAL_A, through successful collaboration and completion of Central World with Sda under his leadership, I am also honored to call Alvin Huang a close friend and colleague.

Alvin created a bespoke office for me in my London home. He and his team put together a series of concepts following inspiration from my requirements and interests. We then fine tuned the design and functionality to ensure that the final version worked for what I wanted it to achieve. The result is a truly unique space that works functionally and wows anybody who sees it. The various hidden compartments further add to the surprise.

I had the first opportunity to interact with Alvin Huang in 2009, when I was developing the concept for the Corian Super Surfaces exhibition for the Milan week of design, and hew was at Al_a architect studio in London. It was definitely an interesting interaction, the design concepts and ideas that Alvin brought on the table were brilliant, outofthebox and effective interpretations of our material Corian advanced surface and its potential. The exhibition was a source of significant inspiration and was also a great success, both in terms of visitors and media coverage.

Alvin (and Synthesis Design + Architecture) is exceptional at complex computational designs and innovative processes that push the boundaries of the industry. He designed a unique and complex 3d award for The Architect's Newspaper and shepherded it through the production. We couldn't be happier with the work Alvin produced for us and the ease of working with him. A+

In 2013 I had the privilege to work with Alvin Huang on the Volvo Pure Tension Pavilion. With complete sincerity I can say that my time spent with Alvin was the single most transformative and influential experience in my design career. Alvin's even keel, conceptual rigor, and breadth of technical expertise became the template from which I modeled my career. I'm anxious to share the same job site, stage, or conference table with Alvin again.

As DuPont Corian event project leader, I worked closely with Alvin when he directed the Corian SuperSurfaces event project by Amanda Levete & Future Systems. Alvin illustrated a keen design sensibility in interpreting and working with Corian with an acute understanding of how to leverage technology and fabrication processes to achieve extraordinary results within project budgets and schedules. The result was fantastic, as the installation was beautiful and a project that we are still very proud of. It was also a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Alvin and his team at Sda for any design endeavor.

We worked with Sda for 2 interesting projects in Thailand and were impressed with their creative and clever approach to the design. Alvin is good in balancing the architectural aesthetic and the project realities with a deep understanding of client's priorities. The integration of his personal style and an understanding of clients led to a sophisticated, practical, and unique project. The whole team were very helpful, operated responsively and professionally. On top of all, they are a pleasure to workwith, pleasant and professional.
