Enlai Hooi is the Head of Innovation at Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects in Copenhagen, Denmark. An architect and industrial designer with specialisation in integrating engineering fields in circular design and architecture, Enlai brings a diverse range of skills to the task of managing complex challenges in the built environment. He leads the firm’s sustainability approach and agenda on adaptive transformation, circular building methods, material health and participatory design strategies. Enlai has won numerous awards in both architecture and design. His experience in designs transgresses scales from product design through architecture to master planning, and his experience with structural environmental and mechanical engineers allows him to communicate fluently across professions.

David Kubrick is a Partner at BKSK Architecture in NYC. David arrived at a career in Architecture through interests in the fine arts and naval architecture. David’s varied interests and ever evolving appreciation for the craft in building has driven him to study and understand a project’s surroundings and strive to draw from these surroundings for informed, thoughtful design. He has served as Adjunct Assistant Professor at City Tech’s program for Architectural Technology.  He received his Bachelor of Science and Master of Architecture from the University of Maryland.

Mikhail Krymov is co-founder and CEO of Sleepbox. He previously co-founded the Moscow-based architecture company arch group, which focused on architectural innovation and public interiors projects. From 2015-2016 Mikhail completed a research fellowship with MIT’s Special Program for Urban and Regional Studies (SPURS).

Dr Juriaan van Meel is Co-founder of BriefBuilder. He is an expert in the field of architectural briefing and workplace design. He has worked on building projects across the world and taught at various universities. Juriaan is (co)author of multiple books, amongst which the Activity-Based Working Practice Guide (2020), Briefing for Buildings (2018) and Workplaces Today (2015).

Simeon Siegel is a partner at the Turett Collaborative Architects.  Immediately after earning a B.A. at Columbia University in Architecture and Music, Seigel started working at TCA, where he project-managed retail, food service and corporate work. During a six-year hiatus he earned his Master of Architecture from the Harvard University Graduate School of Design where he was named both a Thayer Scholar and a Lehman Scholar. He was awarded the AIA Henry Adams Medal, and graduated with Distinction, and as valedictorian, in 2002.

Tristan Wong is Director at SJB Architecture - Melbourne. He was selected as a creative director for the Australian pavilion at the 2020 Venice Architecture Biennale. 

The Office 2021 Design Challenge will be run in partnership with ARCHHIVE BOOKS, and is the first in an annual competition series in which participants are tasked with exploring the work environment. The jury will be looking for design projects that use architecture as a tool to improve a worker’s wellbeing as well as their productivity. This challenge is an opportunity to envision the new normal of the workplace post-COVID.
