D U S T is an alliance of architects, craftsmen, artists, designers, and builders that focus their practice in the master builder tradition. D U S T was formally founded in Tucson, Arizona, USA in 2007, the seeds of which were planted in the late 1990’s on the Llano Estacado in West Texas. The practice has grown through a collaboration between Cade Hayes and Jesús Robles as an exploration of ideas and ethics that had been culminating from their travels and professional experiences. Natives to the deserts of the southwestern U.S., they have cultivated an intimacy to the land in which their work is deeply informed by and attuned to, responding to the environment and the senses. Through attention and craft, the subtleties of their spirit, knowledge, and experience resonate in pursuit of the timeless qualities that remain to inspire and make us dream.
