Representative works include the Pixel House, Missing Matrix, Bundle Matrix, Shanghai Expo 2010: Korea Pavilion, Daum Space.1, Tea Stone/Innisfree, Southcape, Dome-ino, and the Daejeon University Residential College. Active beyond his practice, he co-curated the 2011 Gwangju Design Biennale, and was the commissioner and co-curator of the Korean Pavilion for the 14th International Architecture Exhibition - la Biennale di Venezia, which was awarded the Gold Lion for Best National Participation. In late 2014, PLATEAU Samsung Museum of Art, Seoul, held their first ever architecture exhibition, highlighting his works in a solo exhibition titled "Before/After: Mass Studies Does Architecture."

Lecture: Hansy Better Barraza, Studio Luz, Boston

March 21, 2018

Gin D. Wong, FAIA Conference Center, Harris Hall 101



Born in Barranquilla, Colombia, Hansy received her first professional Bachelors of Architecture degree from Cornell University (1997) and a Masters of Architecture in Urban Design from the Harvard Design School (2000). In 2002, Hansy co-founded Studio Luz Architects – a progressive architecture firm that serves a diverse client base on residential, commercial, institutional, and cultural projects. The firm has been recognized as one of Architecture Record Magazine’s Design Vanguard and the work garnered many local and national design awards. Additionally, Hansy is a co-founder of BR+A+CE, a non-profit that builds new community spaces that engage social, economic, and cultural issues facing communities around the world.


 As Professor of Architecture at the Rhode Island School of Design, Hansy has also deepened her commitment to socially engaged architecture through academic research and teaching. Her book, Where are the Utopian Visionaries: Architecture of Social Exchange by Prestel Press engages in the exchange of ideas, techniques and visions of a more socially just  and diverse understanding for the discipline of architecture, where those people historically relegated to silence and invisibility are given real agency.
