Prior to opening his own firm, Mass Studies, he began his career working at two new york firms: Kolatan / Macdonald Studio, as well as Polshek and Partners. Afterwards he moved to the Netherlands to work at the prestigious OMA. He later returned to New York, where along with partner James Slade, he started Cho Slade Architecture in 1998.
The firm worked on projects in both the US and Korea. Cho successfully won the Architectural League of New York's 'Young Architects Award' in 2000 for his work at Cho Slade. In 2003, Cho moved back to Korea to found his own firm--Mass Studies, where he remains the principal architect.
