Vincent Hui holds several degrees including a master of architecture from the University of Waterloo and a master of business administration from the Schulich School of Business at York University. He also holds a certificate in university teaching and is a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) accredited professional.
Hui has been awarded several teaching distinctions at the University of Waterloo and Toronto Metropolitan University (formerly Ryerson). As a faculty member in Toronto Met's Department of Architectural Science, he teaches a variety of courses, from design studios to advanced architectural computing and digital fabrication.
Hui’s research and projects with physical computing and digital fabrication have been exhibited and published internationally. His recent work with the architectural appropriation of ubiquitous computing, augmented reality and datascapes has culminated in the development of the Arch-App, a tool that enables users to access data on any landmark in the built environment, and the ARIDD Project, a platform that allows users to visualize design work in real-world conditions in real time.
Hui has also cultivated an extensive record of published research on design pedagogy, computer aided design, building information modeling, parametric design, advanced simulation and rapid prototyping. As director of the [R]ed[U]x Lab, he oversees the design and fabrication of innovative works by Ryerson students and many of those projects have been exhibited around the world including Asia, Europe and North America.
A proponent of experiential learning opportunities and innovative teaching methods, Hui believes that learning is an ongoing process that continues beyond the classroom. On that note, he has been a strong supporter of the new Architectural Science Co-operative Education Internship program and has promoted the use of novel teaching and visualization tools in order to enhance the learning experience.
