Mi Ju is fascinated by the relationship between architecture and urbanism. She explores the ways design can open up or close off sections of a city and how these interventions can positively affect an urban landscape. She enjoys working across project typologies to design environments that serve occupants well and potentially alter their behavior for the better.
With a strong background in competitions and a wide breadth of experience in various design phases, Mi Ju relishes in the diversity of a project’s phases as much as different project types. Along with almost a decade of experience in the Korean and American architectural industries, she received her MArchII from Cornell, her Master of Science in Architectural Engineering from Seoul National University, and her Bachelor of Engineering in Architecture from Kookmin University in Korea. She recently received a Special Mention Award at the Anonymous.d_Spiritual.d 2012 Competition and her work has been published and exhibited at Cornell, Soeul National University, and the Daejon International Ideas Competition.
