The studio is an architectural platform based in Copenhagen, active internationally, engaged mostly with projects in challenging environments. Our designs span through various scales and spheres of action, often challenging the status quo through inventiveness and a cross-disciplinary approach. Collaborative work with engineers and the scientific community, like our collaboration with UNESCO’s water resilience department, or NASA, is part of every project we undertake. From master plans in flood prone areas, to efficient design in arctic regions, from desertification or abandoned infrastructure, our methodology aims to turn hazards into assets. We truly believe that what exists is only a small part of what is possible, and we design driven by this principle.
The studio is run by architect and founder David A. Garcia.
