Our studio is highly collaborative, both within our project teams as well as in the way we work with clients and consultants. The fluidity of our structure generates dynamic, collective ideas and integrative work.
Located at the intersection of art and function, architecture shapes our lives. Each building generates new questions, arising from the specifics of particular problems, and results in a unique solution. Our engagement with parametric modeling and BIM in the digital environment fosters the connection of architecture, engineering, fabrication, and construction.
We have long been (pre)occupied with the larger organizational issues of city-making and the undeniable interdependence of architecture and urbanism. We analyze broad global issues in conjunction with distinct local questions, constantly shifting between scales. Our cross-disciplinary, combinatory methodology produces elastic strategies that form the foundation of our work.
Products are opportunities to experiment with the fundamental ideas and creative fabric of architecture. The objects we make allow us to explore different fields while we develop our aesthetic vocabulary. This notion of aesthetics moves us beyond the visual to include the tactile and functional.
Drawings, paintings and constructions allow us to work in a territory free of the constraints of architecture. For us, this provides a space for personal, instinctual explorations that contribute to the foundation of future work, reiterating past projects and preceding new material explorations and buildings.
Operating in political, social, economic, ecological, and infrastructural spheres, we synthesize research from multiple disciplines. Here, we engage large-scale strategic problems in partnership with academic institutions and research groups. We challenge basic assumptions, recalibrate essential conversations, and provoke questions with the goal of building tactical solutions.
Exhibitions, monographs, videos, and books re-frame our output and connect us to a territory beyond architecture and design, extending our dialog to a broader audience. As projects in themselves, they allow for an understanding of the methodology behind the trajectory and complexity of our work.
