Jing Liu co-founded SO – IL with Florian Idenburg in 2008 with an emphasis on building cultural projects as an indispensable part of urban infrastructure. In projects such as the Manetti Shrem Museum of Art at the University of California in Davis and Kukje Gallery in Seoul, she has worked to deconstruct the boundary between institutional space and the public realm. Liu has led SO – IL to explore new fabrication methods and to confront the socio-political issues of urban space through mediums outside the conventional architectural platform. A native of China, Liu received her education in China, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States, concluding with a Master’s of Architecture from the Tulane School of Architecture in New Orleans. Liu is faculty member at The Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation at Columbia University, and advises the Master’s thesis at Parsons, The New School of Design. Liu extends her interest in the future of cities by being an active board member at Van Alen Institute
