Design Critic in Landscape Architecture
Min Yeo (he, him, his) is a Design Critic in Landscape Architecture and a Doctor of Design candidate at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design. His design research focuses on developing formal responses to ecological forces at the shared boundaries of architecture, landscape architecture, and urbanism. His doctoral dissertation titled Envelopes and Laboratories of Environmental Knowledge narrates the story of mid-century American architectural laboratories that explored the relationship between climate and design.
He has taught courses in architecture and landscape architecture at the Harvard GSD, Syracuse Architecture, and Boston Architectural College. He earned his MLA from Harvard University where he received the Master in Landscape Architecture Thesis Prize for his design thesis Wild: Manhattanism Unhinged. He also holds a B.Arch from Syracuse University where his design thesis Crazy Long: A Sticky Landscape Infrastructure received the Dean’s Citation for Excellence.
Min is a co-author of an Office for Urbanization design research publication titled 50 Species-Towns (Harvard University, 2021) that imagines alternative futures of agrarian urbanization in China. A portion of this work was featured in the National Gallery of Victoria’s Melbourne Design Week in 2021.
