Florian Idenburg spoke at Taubman College as part of the 2018-2019 Lecture Series. Florian Idenburg is an internationally renowned architect with two decades of professional experience. He founded SO–IL in 2008 together with Jing Liu.
Idenburg’s practice is collaborative; he believes that innovation is only possible through working together. He has a particularly strong background in cultural spaces, overseeing projects from a temporary installation in MoMA PS1’s courtyard, called Pole Dance, to the recently completed Manetti Shrem Museum of Art at UC Davis.
He combines a pragmatic approach with a theoretical drive, sharing this creative spirit with clients, collaborators, and students. A frequent speaker at institutions around the world, he is an Associate Professor of Practice at Harvard University and has previously taught at MIT, Columbia and Princeton University. His current research investigates the future of workspaces, and he is developing a forthcoming publication on this topic.
