ARCHDEKK is an Independent Studio of Khoa Vu.

The works focuses on the architecture that situates between the measurable rationality of built form and the immeasurable phenomenology of space. Only then could architecture contribute to the sustainable growth of the built environment while engaging with human embodied experience and perception.

Khoa holds a Master of Architecture at Harvard Graduate School of Design with Distinction. He is a winner of Araldo Cossutta Prize 2017 for Design Excellence and a recipient of Department of Architecture Faculty Design Award 2019.

Khoa was born and raised in Vietnam before moving to the US. Prior to Harvard GSD, he earned a Bachelor of Art in Architecture with High Honors from the University of California, Berkeley where he received the Eisner Prize 2015 for highest achievement in the creative art in architecture. He has worked at architectural offices in the US, Europe and Japan. His work was recently exhibited at Milan Design Week as a part of Lexus Design Award Panelist Winners 2019.
