Max Kuo

Max Kuo is a founding partner of the studio ALLTHATISSOLID and has been a Design Critic in Architecture at Harvard Graduate School of Design since 2013. Max has also taught studios at MIT, Tongji University, and numerous universities throughout Seoul. His recent writings and design work explore modernism in the context of digital networks and both their creative and paradoxical impact on architecture and the built environment. Max’s writings have been published in architectural journals such as Pidgin (Princeton), Thresholds (MIT), Mas Context (Chicago), and Pool (UCLA). A forthcoming essay in Log will explore new spatio-temporal frameworks of post-digital culture where architectural novelty privileges the unpredictable behaviors of familiar forms. His work has been exhibited in numerous venues in Los Angeles, Boston, New York, Beijing, and Seoul. In 2016, Max was the Heinz Fellow in Architecture at MacDowell and a National Endowment for the Arts Fellow. In 2003, he was an artist-in residence at the Whitney Museum, Independent Studies Program. He has previously practiced in the offices of Reiser + Umemoto and Fernando Romero Enterprise.
