3/30 - CED Lecture Series: Minsuk Cho

Minsuk Cho
Principal, Mass Studies, Seoul
http://www.massstudies.com/

Minsuk Cho was born in Seoul and graduated from the Architectural Engineering Department of Yonsei University (Seoul, Korea) and the Graduate School of Architecture at Columbia University (New York, NY U.S.A.). He began his professional career working for Kolatan/MacDonald Studio, and Polshek and Partners, both in New York City, and later relocated to the Netherlands to join OMA. Through these jobs, he gained experience in a wide range of architectural and urban projects implemented in various locations. In 1998, with partner James Slade, he established Cho Slade Architecture in New York City to be engaged in various projects both in the U.S.A and Korea.

In 2003, he returned to Korea to start his own firm, Mass Studies, where he remains the principal architect. The firm focuses on the critical investigation of architecture in the context of mass production, intensely overpopulated urban conditions and other emergent cultural niches that define contemporary society. Instead of striving for a singular, unified perspective, Mass Studies focuses on the operative complexity of multiple spatial conditions. The group is currently working on projects of various scales, ranging from small residential projects to large towers. They began working solely in Korea and are now expanding their reach internationally.

This lecture is sponsored by the Department of Architecture. For information on other lectures in the CED Lecture Series, please visit:
