Juhong Park is a licensed engineer, architect, and researcher. His research is centered on Human-Machine-Collaboration, through research on artificial design intelligence as a vehicle to expand the horizon of human capability. He is especially passionate about theories and approaches to enhancing human capabilities through design thinking that defines the limits of brain, body, and behaviors by re-framing the context of problems instead of attempting to solve problems within them.
He is currently based in the Department of Creative IT Engineering at POSTECH Future IT Innovation Laboratory collaborating with researchers and professionals in NASA, the U.S. Army, Miller School of Medicine, and Computer Science Department. Prior to being appointed as an Assistant Professor at POSTECH, he was an Assistant Professor and the coordinator of MS Arch in Computation and Embedded Technology Program at the School of Architecture University of Miami, he was a researcher at MIT School of Architecture and Media Lab, and an architect at the Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA) and the Coop Himmelb(l)au.
Juhong Park received his Ph.D. in Architecture from MIT (major in Design and Computation, and minor in Education with Harvard Graduate School of Education). He also earned M. Arch from Harvard University with faculty nomination for the prestigious James Templeton Kelly Thesis Prize, and B. Eng. in Electronic and Electrical Engineering, and Architecture from Hong-ik University.
