Based in Shanghai
Wei Wei was the first female LEGO® Certified Professional world-wide. Trained as an architect designer, inspired by the LEGO System in Play, she created Playable Design®, a cultural and educational incubator based in Shanghai, China, that inspires people to imagine, build, and express themselves through productive, open, social play.
In 2006, she launched the public art and educational event “Brick by Brick®” and brought Playable Design Methodology into a large number of international architecture and design events and biennals. “Brick by Brick” has reached hundreds of thousands of children and families throughout China, providing them with an opportunity to design and build creations side by side with professionals.
Playable Design is continuously reaching out to poverty areas and rural villages in China to teach “learning through play” that can facilitate learning in young children that can improve their creativity, educational careers, and life chances.
Wei Wei was Born in Beijing, China. She now works and lives in Shanghai with her husband Andrew Gluckman and two lovely children Kai and Kexin.
