SCDA Architects is a multi-disciplinary architectural practice established in 1995 by Principal Soo K. Chan [1] which employs more than 120 professionals[citation needed] at its three offices in Singapore, Shanghai and New York.

SCDA’s work includes residential towers, private houses, commercial and institutional clients, and hotels and resorts. SCDA has recently completed SkyTerrace@Dawson, commissioned by the Singapore Housing Development Board,[2] and is currently designing three residential towers in New York: 118 E. 59th Street,[3] 515 Highline [4] and Soori High Line.[5]

The firm was also the recipient of the SIA-Getz Architecture Prize for Emergent Architecture in Asia and nine The Chicago Athenaeum International Architecture Awards. SCDA was recognized as one of the Design Vanguard [6] firms, redefining the Face of Architecture by Architectural Record USA.
