Jing Liu and Florian Idenburg founded SO-IL in 2008. Jing has been practicing for more than 15 years working on a wide range of projects both in the US and abroad. Through building practice and interdisciplinary research projects, Liu has led SO–IL in engaging with the socio-political issues of contemporary cities — in projects like the Artists Loft North Omaha and the Martin Luther King, Jr. Library in Cleveland. Her projects range from artistic collaborations with contemporary choreographers and visual artists to master plan and major public realm design in cities like Melbourne and Indianapolis.

Florian’s years of working in cross-cultural settings make him a thoughtful and collaborative partner. He has a particularly strong background in institutional spaces, leading the office on projects as Kukje Gallery and the Manetti Shrem Museum of Art at UC Davis as well as Amant in Brooklyn. His strength lies in generating imaginative ideas and transforming those into real-world spaces and objects. SO-IL is both locally rooted and nationless, coming together as a mid-size, well-recognized company. With its ambitious private and public clients, they explore how the creation of environments and objects inspires lasting positive intellectual and societal engagement.
