Chang has a Bachelor Degree in Architecture from Yonsei University in Seoul. During his studies, he founded ’Studio Chang’, a group that believed in collaboration among the different design disciplines. As he believes that “Art can go beyond its limits when cooperating with other fields,'' he collaborated with painters, sound artists, electronic engineers and designers to experiment and produce innovative projects.
