Jihyoon Yoon


Jihyoon is a professional architect. He is a design principal and a founder of JYOON studio. He has 20 years of experience in both fields of architecture and landscape architecture with reputable national design companies. He received a Master in Landscape Architecture degree from Harvard University and a Master of Architecture degree from the University of Pennsylvania.

He is a visionary. He has won several international competitions focusing on environmental sustainability, potentiating a limited space, and design aesthetics.

He is a traveler. He has traveled through five continents, twenty plus countries, with and without his pilot father. Stepping into the unfamiliar places, he encompassed himself with the locals and found many different perspective of the self.

At heart, he is an artist. His passion for art started since he was a little boy. His relatives saw a 10-year-old making furniture and gadgets around the house and called him a talented one. He draws as memories of different places emerge from a sense of smell, taste, or touch. His journey as an artist continues as he seeks for a relationship between what is seen and what is perceived.
