Sai Sinbondit comes from a family of immigrants who came to the United States when he was a child. On their journey here, his family of six went through three refugee camps and finally settled in a small community in the northwest corner of Ohio. While growing up, his father’s and mother’s diligence, commitment and self-reliance to get his family to a better place inspired Sinbondit to not only experience the world, but to explore and question it.
Sinbondit’s work looks toward architecture as a vehicle to explore the world and it’s dynamic relationships among people, cultures, systems, settlement and displacement. It is in this area of boundaries and this place where opposites meet that he tests the idea that architecture is not a political haven, not a world apart from the world, but generator for social change.
He earned a master of architecture degree from Syracuse University and graduated with honors in painting and printmaking from the University of Toledo’s bachelor of fine arts program. Sinbondit also spent some time abroad living and working with organizations such as UNICEF, UNHCR (the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees), and USAID (United States Agency for International Development), in various countries such as Turkey, El Salvador, Thailand, India, France, Italy and Darfur.
