SO-IL

 

“Led by Florian Idenburg and Jing Liu, our New York-based firm works across countries and cultures. Together, our team speaks more than a dozen languages. We have completed projects in North America, Europe, and Asia for ambitious public and private clients. We believe that through deep collaboration, architects can reconnect communities to their environments. In an increasingly digitized world, our architecture incorporates innovative physical materials that follow the specific scale and conceptual grounding of each project, for example, by stretching chainlink over a gallery building or applying bold glass tubing as a museum facade. SOIL creates alluring urban spaces, modern homes, and innovative workplaces. We have designed bespoke offices in Manhattan, a paradigm-shifting museum at UCDavis in California, innovative furniture for Knoll, a revitalized public square in Paris, and affordable housing in Leon, Mexico. Our practice is forward-looking: We work within pre-existing sites and ensure that places will remain adaptable to a dynamic future. Publications like the New York Times and Frankfurter Allgemeine have featured us. Amongst a multitude of accolades, we can count the Vilcek Award, the Curbed Groundbreakers Award, and the MoMAPS1 Young Architects Program Award. Institutions like the Museum of Modern Art and the Art Institute of Chicago have acquired our work.”
