We program genetic design products or buildings that can adjust to fit the needs of many different clients. The programming of a genetic design is similar to making a seed, where genetic information governs the design variation to produce many unique organisms that all belonging to the same type. Our most advanced representation of this idea so far has been our Formid seat. Other work in this section has either generated parts of the idea or will be our next evolution of the idea.
Our approach to design can be applied to many scales, extending beyond the scope of traditional architecture. In particular we have developed a customizable approach to product design that permits us to fit with a variety of custom environmental and human parameters.
We strongly believe in the intersection of research and professional practice and use research to push design philosophies, construction techniques, material characteristics, and spatial possibilities.
