Tectonics Lab


Tectonics Lab is an internationally recognized design laboratory. Established by Hyundai Kim and Sukyung Kim, the laboratory provides a full scope of involvements with the relationship of architecture, landscape, and product design. The works of Tectonics Lab have been featured in The Financial Times, Dezeen, Divisare, Architect Magazine, SPACE(A&HCI), and will be exhibited at The 12th International Festival of Architecture and Urbanism Architecture Week Prague 2018.


Tectonics Lab pursues a transdisplinary, integral approach to architecture, urbanism, and product design. Our research-based methodology embraces practice with theory, materialization with philosophy, and conceptualization with sensibility. The works of Tectonics Lab specifically explore the realm of tectonics through practice and theoretical research focusing especially on the way architectural tectonics affect other formal disciplines. 



Hyundai Kim is the founding director of Tectonics Lab. He holds a Master of Architecture from Princeton University and a Bachelor of Engineering from Yonsei University. He is a registered architect in the state of Florida, United States. After working at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP New York, he joined the faculty as Professor of Architecture at Ewha Womans University in Seoul.
