Christian Gonzalez Ho
Cultural Theorist, Writer, Consultant
Christian Gonzalez Ho holds an M.A. in Architecture from Harvard University and a B.A. in American Studies from Fordham University. Christian's work focuses primarily on the way in which art and architecture relate to the epistemologies of a culture.
In 2010, he left graduate work at Yale to cultivate the spiritual disciplines of meditation, fasting, and prayer at the International House of Prayer in Kansas City, Missouri. During his time in Kansas City, he became a strategist and director of design at Exodus Cry, an anti-human trafficking organization.
Christian and his wife, Christina Gonzalez Ho (HLS ‘14), are cultural consultants based in LA. In 2018, they wrote Los Angeles: Mestizo Archipelago (Pintatubo Press), an ethnography of the Los Angeles contemporary art world and its relationship to faith and spirituality. Christian and Christina are also the creators and directors of Estuaries an experiment in cultivating space for young Christian thinkers to rigorously consider their faith in contemporary society, encounter God, and reimagine the structures and possibilities of their disciplines.
