buildingstudio was founded with two principles in mind:
First, to blur the boundaries between architecture, art, craft and thinking. Rather than separate disciplines, buildingstudio treats each as essential to the larger realm of building.
And coupled with this, buildingstudio's work explores built presence grounded in the experience of the real world, building as realized through a process of critical reflection. As such, their goal is to develop an ongoing ontological investigation where the meaning of presence is fundamental. Acknowledging this as primary, the skill gained through building fuels innovation and discovery which enlivens the design process. With these in the forefront buildingstudio works to develop the kind of built environment that heightens one's experience of being in the world.
