47. The American Suburb | Kenneth Namkung of Monument Office American Building

    • Design

Today, I’m joined by Associate, Senior Project Architect, and Designer with NBBJ, Kenneth Namkung. When he’s not working in the NBBJ Healthcare+ Studio, he’s running Monument Office, his research and design firm. I invited Kenneth on to discuss Suburbanism, a concept design proposal for a civic installation in the Herald Square area of Manhattan. We get into the logistics behind the project, the history of the American suburb, and the ripple effects of the pandemic on suburbia.
