Jeannette Kuo

“I think that architecture is more than just buildings. we’re part of a long tradition and a long history and it is, at the end of the day, also an intellectual pursuit.”

Jeannette Kuo is an architect in Switzerland. Kuo comes from a diverse cultural background with ties to both Indonesia and Chinese origins. Her work combines spatial concepts with constructive technologies, recognizing architecture as a social and material discipline. She is also an Assistant Professor in Practice at the Harvard GSD. In 2010, she co-founded her eponymous firm, KARAMUK KUO. Domus design magazine recognized her practice as one of the 50 best architectural firms of 2020.
