Jennifer Bonner founded MALL, a creative practice for art and architecture, in 2009.
MALL stands for Mass Architectural Loopty Loops. Or Miniature Angles & Little Lines. Or Maximum Arches with Limited Liability—an acronym with built-in flexibility.
The acronym is a 20th century Americanism in wide circulation—Americans love their shorthand. MALL uses short form, not to be quick or flippant, but because our architectural interests shift for each project. MALL is interested in an intellectual project and is committed to projects that re-appropriate history, hack typologies, reference cultural events, and invent representation.
By engaging “ordinary architecture” such as gable roofs and everyday materials, MALL playfully reimagines architecture in the field.
