Praxes is a multidisciplinary architecture firm based in Brooklyn.  My name is Ji Young Kim and I’m a principal. We believe design can improve our everyday lives and transform them into something extraordinary. I am a licensed architect in the State of New York and have completed a number of projects in North America.

I’m experienced with projects in various sizes and scope, ranging from apartments to retail to art museums, as well as design consulting services. Prior to starting Praxes, I gained great experience in new construction and renovation of cultural, commercial and residential projects from the firms of Shigeru Ban Architects (2014 Pritzker Prize Laureate) and Asymptote Architecture.

I’m also an Adjunct Professor of Architecture at the New Jersey Institute of Technology and Visiting Assistant Professor of Interior Design at Pratt Institute.
