Augmenting our in-house model shop, our satellite fabrication space expands our research and prototyping capacities, providing a flexible environment that can adapt to evolving design goals and project demands. Our fabrication capacities sponsor a feedback-loop between design and construction, challenging architectural concepts with the rigors of physical production in an immediate and informative way. At the same time, we question conventional construction methods to enhance building performance and human experience.
Our ability to rapidly iterate large-scale mock-ups is both an internal design tool and a means of communicating complex design ideas to clients and builders. A model or prototype facilitates decision-making; it helps all parties understand the design problem and have a voice in its resolution.
