SsD's Jinhee Park on Site-Specific Design, From Cambridge to Korea
With 90+ categories and 300+ jurors, the Architizer A+Awards is the world’s definitive architectural awards program. We are pleased to showcase some of the 100+ winners. In partnership with Cadillac, this series of profiles offers an exclusive look at several firms that push the boundaries of the profession and truly dare greatly.
With a design studio as small as SsD (short for Single Speed Architecture), counting just a few people in their Boston, New York, and Seoul offices, one wouldn’t expect to find such a diverse body of work. Harvard graduates Jinhee Park and John Hong established the firm in 2003 while working together on three townhouses in Cambridge and have since moved on to bigger projects including the elegant White Block Gallery and Songpa Micro-Housing block that recently won the 2015 Architizer A+Award in the Residential: Multi-Unit Housing – Mid-Rise (5–15 Floors) category.
