What are the major challenges faced?
It is great to have a great deal of control on our projects, but when you have designed, developed and produced the design, there is nobody else you can blame other than yourself.
How would you describe your work?
Our studio’s objective is to offer an experience of art as architecture and a discovery of architecture as an intense piece of art. Everyone working in our studio is a trained architect. The primary drive for our projects is a joint interest in the structure of a project, how it relates to the environment and an interest in creating lightweight, selfsupporting structures.
What currently inspires your work?
Each project further develops our ongoing research and development into custom computational protocol A recent project is The Chrysalis Amphitheater in Columbia, Maryland. A main premise of the design is that though it is officially
