EMERGING VOICE 2013
SO – IL
SO – IL, the office of Florian Idenburg and Jing Liu, uses abstraction to digest the contextual and programmatic needs of a project, producing a refined response to site and function developed from iterative studies of form and information that “clarify the essence of an idea.” Recent projects of the New York City-based office include the Kukje Art Gallery in Seoul; the 2012 Frieze Art Fair tent in New York City; the Linked Community Center in Wulpen, the Netherlands; and, “Tri-colonnade,” an installation at the 2011 Shenzhen Hong Kong Bi-City Biennale in Shenzhen, China.
Florian Idenburg received a M.S. in Architecture from Delft University of Technology and currently teaches at Harvard University. Jing Liu received her M.Arch from Tulane University and currently teaches at Columbia University and Parsons The New School of Design. The office is the 2010 winner of the MoMA/MoMA PS1 Young Architects Program for its project “Pole Dance.” See more of their work at so-il.org.
Florian Idenburg and Jing Liu will be presenting their work on Thursday, March 7th, as part of the Emerging Voices 2013 lecture series.
