KnitKnot Architecture is an international collective of Architects, Urban Planners, Artists and Thinkers that have created an international framework to work as a professional studio.
The strength of this studio is in our network based way of working together, all knitting at the same time! The KnitKnotters are a group of professionals striving to attain our common and individual goals. We add up as a whole for our biggest endeavors or we divide in to teams for our smaller projects, but we encourage our members to think and work independently, and by relying on each other we build up our intelligence and sharpen our talents. We are stitches of the same fabric and as so we can stretch for, wrap up, fit in, cover up, fold in, extend for and much more!
We believe that architectural practice nowadays is based on a system of collaboration in which everyone efforts are blended anonymously into one result, discouraging individuality while achieving a corporate product. On the other hand, we propose a collaborative way of working that does not neutralize the individual. Instead, each individual work is still clearly legible within the collaborative whole.
As a result, our work does not belong to a unitary ideological agenda, but is in every case the result of a group discussion. Different academic and professional backgrounds are therefore a requirement. We embrace diversity over homogeneity, difference over repetition, discussion over consensus.
