Mimi Hoang, AIA, is a principal of nARCHITECTS and an Adjunct Assistant Professor at Columbia University’s GSAPP (Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation). Along with partner Eric Bunge, she co-founded nARCHITECTS with the goal of addressing contemporary issues in architecture through conceptually driven, socially engaging and technologically innovative work. Their work instigates interactions between architecture, public space, and their dynamically changing contexts. The letter ‘n’ represents a variable, indicating the firm’s interest in designing for a dynamic variety of experiences within a systemic approach. nARCHITECTS has been honored with an American Academy of Arts and Letters Award in Architecture, the AIANY’s Andrew J. Thomson Award for Pioneering in Housing, several AIA Design Honor Awards, the Architectural League’s Emerging Voices and the Canadian Professional Rome Prize. World Architecture News named nARCHITECTS “part of a select group crowned to lead the next generation of designers in the 21st century.” Mimi received a Master of Architecture from the Harvard Graduate School of Design, a B.Sc in Architecture from M.I.T. She regularly lectures on the work of nARCHITECTS and the themes of innovative contemporary practices, density, new housing models, and women in architecture.
