Choi's research concerns infrastructure, technology, and the synthetic role of landscape design as a cultural practice. Current research projects include: a critical environmental history of 20th century interior landscapes; water infrastructure and the invention of public nature; and the politics of preservation, conservation, and restoration in the current climate crisis. Archival research is central to design research methodologies as a means of contaminating, rather than consolidating, landscape and urban histories, as well as a way to uncover evidence of ecological systems and social practices over time that may be unresponsive to formal analysis.
