Ingrid  Hu


I am a scenographer, cross-disciplinary designer and maker based in London. I apply scenography on an urban scale, and design performances that respond and investigate contemporary perspectives. I have designed for theatre, dance and sound performances, as well as exhibitions and installations in the public realm.

I received an MA in Scenography from Central Saint Martins in 2002, and worked at Heatherwick Studio for 7 years, where I was involved in a wide range of projects with clients such as the British Council, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and the V&A Museum.

I was one of the core members in the studio who delivered the Lubetkin-winning UK Pavilion for the 2010 World Expo. My design for the exhibition of the instruments used in Longplayer, a 1000-year musical composition, was selected for the 2014 Aesthetica Art Prize. As scenography consultant and designer, I contributed to the Fire! Fire! Exhibition at the Museum of London. I am a member of the Society of British Theatre Designers.
