WOHA is a Singapore-based architecture practice, founded in 1994 by Wong Mun Summ (born 18 August 1962) and Richard Hassell (born 28 October 1966). Its name is derived from the surnames of the two principals.

The practice became well known throughout Southeast Asia for their crisply detailed houses in Singapore.[according to whom?] The firm shifted focus to public and commercial architecture in 2000, when the partnership won open competitions for two MRT railway stations in Singapore and a commission for the 1 Moulmein Rise apartment block.[1] Subsequent projects included Newton Suites and the School of the Arts in Singapore, and The Met in Bangkok, the later of which was well regarded for its sustainable strategies. When The Met won the RIBA Lubetkin Prize in 2011,[2] the jury citation stated: "The Met shows that an alternative strategy to the sleek air-conditioned box can work in the tropics and has implications everywhere."
