Julia van den Hout is founder of Original Copy, a communications office that specializes in editorial, curatorial and research projects.
Julia is also co-founder and editor of CLOG, a quarterly architecture publication that aims to slow down the rapid pace of architectural discourse and provide a platform for the discussion of subjects particularly relevant to architecture now. Alongside the thirteen issues published thus far, CLOG has organized events in New York, Boston, Miami, Chicago, Venice and Stockholm.
As part of CLOG, Julia curated New Views: The Rendered Image in Architecture at the Art Institute of Chicago, and she was on the curatorial team for Spontaneous Interventions, the US Pavilion at the 13th International Venice Biennale in 2012.
From 2008 to 2014, Julia was Press Director at Steven Holl Architects, where she was responsible for developing and coordinating the PR strategy for over 30 projects and competitions, organizing the opening and publication of more than 10 completed projects, and the coordination of multiple traveling exhibitions.
Julia has lectured and been a critic at NYU, Princeton University, Cornell University, Kent State University, Syracuse University, and the Sotheby's Institute of Art.
Julia is a 2014 Graham Foundation Grant Award recipient with Kyle May for The Egg and The Extrusion, a research project on the work of Wallace K. Harrison.
