Ming Thompson MArch ’10 was recently honored with a 2020 AIA Young Architects Award. Each year, the Young Architects Award is given to individuals who have shown exceptional leadership and made significant contributions to the profession in an early stage of their architectural career.  “As the leader of an innovative multidisciplinary firm, Ming Thompson, AIA, has proposed a new paradigm for architecture and challenged the rigid definition of practice. Her prominent voice has driven the conversation on equity in architecture, and her efforts and stamina have led to positive change and increased longevity for the profession.”

As the article states, “after years of working for firms, from traditional studios to community development corporations around the world, Thompson founded Atelier Cho Thompson with partner Christina Cho Yoo in 2014. In her work, Thompson leans on the rich diversity of her personal history and has shaped her practice around a more humane vision of architecture built around the human body.”
