Architect, designer, and teacher J. Meejin Yoon is the founder of MY Studio, from which she creates solo conceptual work, and cofounder of Höweler + Yoon Architecture, a partnership with her husband, Eric Höweler. Her independent practice is multidisciplinary, exploring the intersections between art, architecture, and landscape. She has created participatory environments combining architecture, media, and installations as well as concept clothing and artists’ books. Her project White Noise White Light, installed in a public square at the base of the Acropolis for the 2004 Athens Olympics, consisted of a grid of flexible and luminous fiber optic stalks that responded to human and natural forces through sound and light.
