John Hong and Jinhee Park are founding principals of SsD, an architecture firm that approaches design as a convergent, interdisciplinary venture. By focusing on a broader vision of sustainability, they search for ways in which minimum form can take maximum effect. Along with being published in major media such as Metropolis Magazine, Dwell Magazine, Architectural Record, and The New Yorker, to name a few, SsD has received many design awards including the AIA Young Architects Award, the Emerging Voices Award by the Architectural League of NY, an Holcim Foundation for Sustainable Construction Award, the Metropolis Next Generation Prize, and ten AIA awards.
John Hong is currently Adjunct Associate Professor at the Harvard Graduate School of Design. John Hong will be teaching as a distinguished Visiting Professor in the fall 2013 semester at the Bernard and Anne Spitzer School of Architecture.
