Molly Hunker
Assistant Professor

B.A., Dartmouth College; M.Arch, University of California at Los Angeles

Molly is a Wyoming-raised designer and educator and the co-captain of the award-winning practice, SPORTS, with Greg Corso. SPORTS is focused on creating compelling spaces that are catalysts for social activities. They approach design in a playful way, by balancing rigor and research with amusement and curiosity, and with the ambition to generate fresh and unexpected experiences of the built environment. Much of their work has been public interventions that leverage the possibility for straightforward and high-economy design gestures to have significant urban and community impacts. SPORTS is the recipient of a 2017 Arch League Prize from the Architectural League of NY, the 2018 Young Architect Award from The Architect’s Newspaper, and a 2017 and 2020 ACSA Faculty Design Award.

Molly received a BA from Dartmouth College and an MArch from UCLA. She has worked for architecture studios and art workshops along the west coast including Talbot McLanahan Architecture, Doug Aitken Workshop, and The LADG. She previously taught at UCLA, Woodbury University, and The University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). She is currently an Assistant Professor at Syracuse University School of Architecture.
