Junho Lee | President, Manager | Architecture Team

Junho has worked in the architecture field for more than 10 years. While working in the field, he became to be more aware of the urban issues, and the importance of people centred urban development. It made him redefine what ‘good’ design designer is. He has been working for public projects, and dedicated to community-driven urban regeneration in recent years.

Mijung, the CEO of Toad Housing (Social Enterprise for Social Housing), is a leading architect working for social issues in South Korea. Her strong belief in the importance of architects’ social role has inspired many architects, and led to her pioneer projects of urban regeneration, alternative housing programme, and community development in cities. She has always stressed that urban regeneration is the process of socioeconomic regeneration, not simply of a physical one, and tried to recorded people’s stories and share with others.
