We bring the wonder and mystery of the cosmos down to earth. We believe that architecture's role in society should be to give glimpses of the massive, hidden, dark, and abundant things all around us in the universe, in order to unsettle our habitual ways of being on earth.

Our projects are conceived as ecologies of lively, discrete objects that engage one another democratically and without hierarchy. Our objects are not reductive, like sticks, bricks, or nails, but rather fully-formed and specific things like jacks, crystals, ziggurats, mountains, cities, and forests.



We operate as collectors and curators rather than conventional architectural form-makers. As a result, our projects appear chunky, playful, provisional, and even sometimes like models built at full scale.

In our practice, everything is invented and nothing is taken for granted. We are committed to using our expertise in design, computation, construction, and energy intelligence to build a radical and hopeful future.


Imagine a world where everything exists equally but differently, like a collection of treasures laid out on a table. Against both reductive hierarchies and homogenizing unities, this is a vision for architecture that is radically flat and built from discrete, lively entities.Tom Wiscombe
