New York City-based TPG Architecture has appointed Shay Lam as managing executive. Lam originally joined the firm in 2016.

In his previous role as studio creative director, Lam led various projects within TPG’s hospitality practice. Most recently, he and his team completed the design for Citadines Apart’Hotels—a division of The Ascott Limited in New York. Additional work includes projects for clients such as Marriott, Mack-Cali, and Gunung Sewu Kencana in Jakarta, Indonesia. 

In his new role as managing executive, Lam will continue to drive innovative design at TPG in order to create projects that inspire. One of his primary goals is to actualize the trends that will propel design in the hotel and travel industry, as well as to discover and identify key drivers that are changing this sector.
