SO–IL

SO–IL was born in New York in 2008.

Diverse in origin, our team of collaborators speaks a dozen languages and is informed by global narratives and perspectives. We are both locally-rooted and nationless, coming together as a mid-size, well-recognized company. With our ambitious private and public clients, we explore how the creation of environments and objects inspires lasting positive intellectual and societal engagement.

SO–IL have completed projects in Leon, Seoul, and Lisbon, as well as our hometown, Brooklyn, New York.
In a digitized world that increasingly draws one inward, our architecture is outward-looking, engendering meaningful dialogue with what is materially and psychologically outside of ourselves. Our concept home for nomadic living in Milan encourages an active awareness of life beyond routine. At the University of California, Davis campus, we designed a museum that cultivates an intentionally open-ended relationship between the visitor and the site at the outset.

We design with time in mind. Whether working with existing structures or building from the ground, we carefully investigate physical properties and history. In Meisenthal, France, we transformed an industrial heritage site into a thriving cultural campus in this way. Our interventions are both respectful of their pasts and adaptable to a dynamic future.

We have been featured in the New York Times, CNN, and Frankfurter Allgemeine. Our work is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Guggenheim Museum, and the Art Institute of Chicago. Our team has received numerous accolades, including the Vilcek Award, the Curbed Groundbreakers Award, and the MoMAPS1 Young Architects Program Award.

Our New York practice is led by Jing Liu and Florian Idenburg.
