Johannes Berry, a South African architect based in Brussels, is the 2019–20 Douglas A.Garofalo Fellow of the UIC College of Architecture, Design and Arts of Chicago.
Berry’s research will focus on the relationship between humans, materials, and construction, with an aim toward finding combinations that allow openness in interpretation.
Berry studied fashion design in Cape Town before obtaining a BA in architecture from the University of Hasselt and an MSc in architecture from the KU Leuven, where he has been teaching since 2015. In 2016, Berry and Mayu Takasugi founded Sugiberry, a practice based in Brussels and Tokyo.
In spring 2020 Sugiberry, together with Schenk Hattori and architecten de vylder vinck taillieu will be on showcase at the Flanders Architecture Institute (deSingel, Antwerp).
