Healing injured animals as a teenager In Cho had aspirations to become a veterinarian living abroad. This goal organically led to her present life as a licensed architect in NY, NJ and Connecticut. Her desire to connect all ways of life has informed her decades of architectural design in a wide range of project types, including urban planning, high-rise curtain wall design, renovations for commercial and residential buildings, and new building construction. In Cho practices architecture while always thinking of the diverse ways we experience space: from the ergonomics of the individual to dynamics of a whole community. Considering all confirms how best to build healthy and poetic connections.

Coming from a family of architects and environmentalists Ethan has always had a deep concern for the nexus of the natural and built environment. At ChoShields he is thrilled to be able to integrate these two passions in practice- through passive house and land based social enterprise.
