Hodgetts + Fung, also known as HplusF, is an interdisciplinary design studio based in Culver City, California specializing in architectural design, advanced material fabrication, historical restorations, and exhibition design and is led by principals Craig Hodgetts and Hsinming Fung.


In 1980, Ming Fung and Craig Hodgetts were part of a loose affiliation of Los Angeles architects known as the L.A. Ten.[1] Hodgetts + Fung was founded in 1984 by Craig Hodgetts and Hsinming Fung. HplusF is a studio made up of architects and designers with special expertise in the design of unique places for learning, cultural events, and civic functions. These qualities are most prominent in the 1993 Temporary Library at UCLA,[2] as well as the recently completed Wildbeast Pavilion at California Institute of the Arts, for which a folded steel cantilever provides an acoustically sophisticated setting for musical performance. The resulting integration of form and function reflects a process which is sensitive to abstract qualities as well as real-world constraints.[3] Hodgetts + Fung is also renowned for their renovation work on iconic Los Angeles structures like the design and construction of the new Hollywood Bowl,[4] and the renovation of the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood.[5]


Craig Hodgetts attended Oberlin College, San Francisco State College, and University of California, Berkeley. He received his Master of Architecture from Yale School of Art and Architecture in 1966. Prior to Hodgetts + Fung, Craig Hodgetts' professional affiliations include working with the famed British architect Sir James Stirling and was the principal and co-founder of Studio Works with Robert Mangurian from 1968 - 1983.[6] Craig holds two U.S. patents: one for the Building Blocks prefabricated modular classroom for the LAUSD, and one patent for LINC, a prefabricated, kit-of-parts housing system.[7] Craig Hodgetts was one of the founding deans at California Institute of the Arts for the College of Design in 1969,[8] has held visiting professorships at Yale, MIT, and he currently is a tenured professor of Architecture at University of California, Los Angeles School of Architecture and Urban Design.[9] In 2006, he won the Gold Medal Award from the American Institute of Architects, Los Angeles.[10] He is currently teaching the UCLA SUPRASTUDIO focused on developing Elon Musk's Hyperloop concept, a pneumatic tube transporting riders from Los Angeles to San Francisco in 30 minutes.[11]

Hsinming Fung received her Master of Architecture from University of California, Los Angeles in 1980. From 2002 - 2010 she served as the Director of Graduate Programs at the Southern California Institute of Architecture and in 2011 she became the Director of Academic Affairs.[12] From 1999-2002 she was the Graduate Program Coordinator, Department of Architecture, College of Environmental Design, California State Polytechnic University, Pomona. She has held visiting professorships at Yale, MIT, and The Royal Academy of Coppenhagen. Hsinming Fung won the Rome Prize Advanced Fellowship in Design Art in 1991 and is a Fellow of the American Academy in Rome. In 1992 she won the Graham Foundation Grant for Research and Travel. She has also served as a National Peer for the General Services Administration in Washington, D.C., and in 2004 served on the National Endowment of the Arts Council.[13] In 2006, she won the Gold Medal Award from the American Institute of Architects, Los Angeles.[14] Hsinming Fung has also served on the executive board of the American Institute of Architects and currently serves on the board of the PLACES Journal.[15] Hsinming Fung currently serves as the President of the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture.[16]
