What at­tracted you to art in­stal­la­tions?

The Ideal Home and Garden - - Feature -

The sub­jec­tiv­ity of art and ra­tio­nale of sci­ence ap­pealed to me since I was a kid. I pur­sued a sci­en­tific bac­calau­re­ate in math­e­mat­ics, and then went to mul­ti­ple ar­chi­tec­ture schools to avoid a sin­gle stand­point. By the end of it, be­yond the mix of art and sci­ence, the ap­peal lay in the re­al­i­sa­tion that ar­chi­tec­ture is an im­por­tant part of a per­son’s daily en­vi­ron­ment, and also that ev­ery project is dif­fer­ent, and that there is no rou­tine.

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
