Christina Cho awarded 2017 Queensland Emerging Architect Prize

Christina Cho, an associate at Cox Architecture, has been awarded the 2017 Queensland Emerging Architects Prize by the Australian Institute of Architects.

At Cox Architecture, Cho has been involved in projects such as the University of Queensland Oral Health Centre, which won both the Interior Architecture Award at the 2016 National Architecture Awards for interior architecture and the FDG Stanley Award for Public Architecture at the 2016 Queensland Architecture Awards.

Prior to her role at Cox, Cho held a position at Donovan Hill.

Cho has also been instrumental in the introduction and continued success of Pecha Kucha nights in Brisbane. Pecha Kucha, a transliteration of the Japanese phrase for chitchat, is a presentation format where a speaker presents 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images advance automatically as the speaker talks along to them. The 50th Pecha Kucha night to take place in Brisbane will be held at the Brisbane Powerhouse on 17 September to celebrate 10 years of events in the city.

Cho was the chair of Young Architects Queensland (now the Queensland chapter of the Emerging Architects and Graduates Network) from 2008 to 2010.

She was one of 20 architects profiled in Chasing the Sky: 20 Stories of Women in Architecture by Dean Dewhirst, published earlier this year.
