Dr. Juney Lee

Juney is a PhD candidate at the Institute of Technology in Architecture, ETH Zürich, where he is a research assistant in the Block Research Group.

He has a Bachelor of Arts degree in architecture with a minor in structural engineering from the University of California at Berkeley. After receiving a Master of Architecture degree from MIT in 2014, he continued his interdisciplinary education and research at MIT's Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, and completed a Master of Engineering (Structural) degree in 2015. His Master of Engineering thesis titled “Grammatical Design with Graphic Statics,” received the Marvin E. Goody award from MIT in December 2014.

Juney has over five years of professional experience from a number of renowned design offices in the United States, including Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (San Francisco and Chicago), Grimshaw Architects (New York) and TriPyramid Structures Inc. (Westford, MA). He has collaborated with designers, architects and engineers on a wide range of projects including high-rise towers, private residential homes, a state-of-the-art museum, city masterplans, and design-fabrication of custom, steel architectural hardware.

His main research interest includes the rigorous exploration of graphical computation in structural engineering done in conjunction with various computational methods used in other disciplines to discover new structural and architectural design opportunities.

Juney received one of the Architecture & Technology PhD Fellowships in 2015.
