ESKYIU is a multi-disciplinary architecture studio that explores how Architecture intersects with transformative cultural landscapes, media, products, print, experimental fabrication systems, educational tools and social sustainability. Founded in New York by Eric Schuldenfrei and Marisa Yiu in 2005, they established the Hong Kong studio-office in 2007. Their architectural practice operates in an open and collaborative environment, at various scales (product-objects to urban scale projects) working closely with various disciplines in a rigorous and sensitive manner.
They were awarded the prestigious ‘Architectural League Prize’, Architectural Record’s Design Vanguard, Design for Asia Award, Perspective’s ‘40 under 40’; curated the 2009 HK & SZ Bi-City Biennale; exhibited widely such as the Venice Biennale; lectured internationally such as the Harvard’s AsiaGSD conference, TEDx, V&A museum, the Asia Society to Universities world wide from Nanjing, Finland to Cambridge. Recently they published INSTANT CULTURE: Architecture and Urbanism as a Collective Process.
