MADLAB, an architect and design team based in NY & NJ, joined forces with the artist collective, SPURSE as they were challenged to “rethink the power of design” after Carlo’s original design vision took a hit when he realized the high price tag and long fabrication times associated with it. Now a trip to IKEA would have been the easy way out, but over a bottle of wine (of course) they came up with a turnkey solution that required the client to give up all creative control in exchange for a “fast, cheap, and ingenious outcome”.
Over at Archdaily they invited architects from around the world to submit photos of their offices, and they demonstrate an interesting phenomenon: Architects usually design their spaces for collaboration. Where most businesses use have private offices, cube farms or office systems that promote privacy, architect’s offices so often ignore the rules that they impose on others and are in each others face, all the time.
