CO–G is a collaboration. We like to test many variations of a thing. We think that architecture can wear many hats, and be described by any number of adjectives, so we aren’t interested in being too absolute. We prefer to approach each project with a curious experimentation and let things develop from there.

Elle is a licensed architect, co-founder of CO–G, and a Design Critic in Architecture at the Harvard Graduate School of Design.

Prior to CO–G, she was an Associate at Höweler+Yoon where she led architecture and public art projects in Dubai, Shanghai, and the US. This included FloatLab, a submersible ring designed to experience a contaminated river, which won a Progressive Architecture Award, and the 2020 Empathy Pavilion in collaboration with the MIT Media Lab. She worked in New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, and Rotterdam, where at OMA she contributed on the Timmerhaus Cultural Center, the Qatar National Library, and the Venice Biennale. She has taught studios at MIT exploring design through alternate forms of representation and authorship.
